Sponsor of Valuing Disability Business of the Year
bemix is an East Kent and Medway social business working alongside people with learning difficulties and autism as equal partners and colleagues. We match disabled talent with employer needs so everyone benefits. A specialism is supported internships, in which young people in work placements learn the job unpaid and prove their qualities, becoming valued, paid employees wherever possible.
Since 2013, Matt has led the company through investment in delivering education, developing supported employment services, rebranding and achieving 30% turnover growth.
80% of Kent’s adults are in work, but only 53% of disabled people get the same chance to boost Kent’s economy with their skills. As the need for local, loyal workers grows, employers tapping into disabled talent are really onto something. We’re thrilled to be celebrating their deserved success through this brand new award category.
