They are people with and without learning difficulties and/or autism, working and learning together. Whether it’s to be seen working, be heard campaigning or belong to a friendly group of people, people achieve their goals with bemix.
They live and work in Kent. Most of their work is in Canterbury, Dover, Thanet, Sittingbourne and Medway but they do offer some support in other areas.
They support people with learning difficulties and/or autism to speak up, make choices and become powerful and influential. They support them to gain opportunities and become more independent in learning, housing, work, health, money, travel, leisure and relationships.
They support people to hear, respect and empower people with learning difficulties and/or autism.
They promote positive action to challenge negative attitudes about disability.
They work with local communities so that people with learning difficulties and/or autism become fully included and no longer segregated.
We have been working with bemix since before we opened! We work together to provide oppurtunities for people to gain work experience and valuable employability skills.
