About this event
When children with disability are getting close to the age of leaving school, parents often worry about their future and if they would be able to live independently or able to secure an employment. There are some social enterprises in the disability sector set up to support adults with disability for employment. The Cookie Project is one of the arising social enterprises which started in 2018. They employ people with disabilities to make delicious cookies, sell it to support to pay these disabled employees with minimum wages. We have invited the founder of The Cookie Project, Eric Chuah and Graeme Haddon to our meeting to share with parents about The Cookie Project and what they offer to people with disabilities.
Eric Chuah and Graeme Haddon, Founders of The Cookie Project will deliver the presentation in English and it will be interpreted into Mandarin. The presentation is starting promptly at 10am.
