Brandon Albion Cares

Brandon Hickman's cerebral palsy and learning difficulties haven't stopped him finding a job he shines in through the Albion Cares programme.

The Foundation's scheme aims to support young adults with disabilites or additional needs to gain experience within the working environment through job placements, short-term and long-term work experience and full-time contracts.

Brandon has flourished during his time at Bache Group as a quality assistant.

Tasked with health and safety checks and admin duties, the 22-year-old has had a positive impact on the company.

"He has an infectious laugh, he has an infectious smile, he is an infectious type of lad," said Robert Bache, Bache Group Managing Director.

The Principal Partner of the Foundation, Bache Group continues to support the charity and its participants.

"It is very good for Brandon and it's going to give him a boost in his career, in his life - that gives us all a very warm feeling," added Robert.

Previously on benefits and looking for work, the youngster's gratitude for The Albion Foundation's support shines through.

"The Foundation is more than a football club because it's helped me so much and I'm glad I'm with them and I thank them a lot," Brandon said.

Robert's joy at seeing Brandon blossom resulted in a ringing endorsement for the programme.

"The Albion Cares project is something that should be rolled out across the country," he said.

"It's about what they can do, not what they can't do and that's the most important thing."
