Our team of Support Mentors and In-Work Supporters are committed to working with people to reach their potential! We employ lots of people who are neurodivergent or have a learning disability, which has helped us achieve some fantastic outcomes for the people we support.
Founding Director, Ben has worked with adults with learning disabilities and autistic adults for over 12 years, and previously managed a music festival!
Our Directors have lived experience of the issues Bridge Creative works to improve, from living with a learning disability, to experience of long-term youth unemployment.
County Durham has one of the highest unemployment rates for people with learning disabilities in the country, with only 0.7% of people with a learning disability in any form of paid employment (ten times lower than the national average). This means only 11 people out of over 1,700 people with learning disabilities have a paid job!
We believe with the right support, people can have equal access to employment and reach their potential. Our focus is on creating jobs within the events, arts and creative industries, but we support people in lots of different workplaces.
We are a social enterprise and support people to work at festivals such as Glastonbury and BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend and support people to design and build art installations for music festivals and events.
