What is Rise Up?

RISE UP is a new community programme where you can show your support for people with learning disabilities and/or autism and ensure BSK can keep on providing valuable workplace training opportunities into the future. £15 per month will provide a workplace training session for a crew member and make a long-term difference to their life.



Rise Up stats

Gabby Ellmers, CEO:

There are still so many barriers in society and in access to work for people with learning disabilities and/or autism. Last year, two crew members with 4 years training were ready to move on to open employment and started applying for jobs. The hospitality industry was on its knees with over 250 vacancies. They got very little response and felt dejected. One removed Beresford Street Kitchen from their CV and instantly received interviews. We need the community to Rise Up and stand with people with learning disabilities and/or autism so we can make real long-term changes in creating a more inclusive society and workforce in Jersey.
