Gill Reed • Quote from Gill Reed, Operational Manager for Department of Genetic Medicine about Ryan, Supported Internship Programme
Ryan is a real success story and I am delighted to have him as a member of my team within the administrative section in Genetic Medicine. He has made so much progress within the department over the last three and half years, not only in terms of understanding and maintaining his own workload, but also in forming friendships with colleagues. He is a different person from when he first started and a lot more confident and able to work on his own initiative. I am thrilled that he was given the initial opportunity through Project Search.

The Supported Internship provides a strong evidence-base of what works well in terms of achieving genuine social and financial inclusion for young disabled talent, including meaningful and sustained employment. Year on year the partnership has grown stronger and the results speak volumes about the merits of joining forces to achieve a common aim, in this case delivering excellence in transition, careers and opportunities for all Manchester young people.
