Eight people supported by Community Integrated Care are on a path to achieving their dreams after signing up to Widnes Vikings’ employability training programme.

People supported at St. Michaels and Gordon House services in Liverpool are taking part in the programme with the Vikings, which supports people to gain the core skills for work. This is the latest development in the Vikings’ ever-successful partnership with the charity, which has been recognised at the 3rd Sector Care Awards.

Community Integrated Care is one of Britain’s biggest charities. Founded in Widnes, it supports thousands of people who have learning disabilities, mental health concerns, autism and dementia.

To celebrate their success on the course, the group were invited to the Vikings’ last regular season home game against Wakefield Trinity on Friday 14th July. They were presented with certificates of achievement at half time by first team stars Patrick Ah Van and MacGraff Leuluai.

Richard Munson, Commercial and Community Director, says: “It was brilliant to see how proud the group were when they went pitch-side for their presentation. By taking part in the course, people supported by the charity have been able to fine-tune and develop their skills. We hope that this programme makes a big difference to all the participants.”
