A devoted step-mum has launched a Twitter campaign to find meaningful employment for her step-son Ben, who has Down's Syndrome.
Ben, 26, is a trained and qualified chef who wants to work in a bakery, but none of the kitchens where he completed work experience wanted to offer him paid work.
One tweeter said: "Wish I had my own restaurant to be able to do this. Heartbreaking at discrimination."
Won't someone in the Liverpool area give my step son, Ben, who has Down's Syndrome a chance at a paid job? Motivated with NVQ 2 in catering— Fleabag (@FleaBagLady) March 13, 2015
Down's Syndrome doesn't mean his work isn't worth a wage like everyone else.
