Meaningful employment and social inclusion for all abilities.
Paddy is a young man living in Canberra with his family.
Paddy has severe Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and whilst he does't have verbal skills, he's learning to communicate using his iPad.
Paddy completed his schooling in 2019, and as a result, wanted to contribute to the family business.
His business, Paddy's PickUp is growing beyond the towel service for the family's hairdressing salon, and now includes several other businesses requiring his services.
Paddy's PickUp is a service which allows Paddy (with his support worker) to collect, wash, dry and return towels to local businesses around Canberra.
These business may include hairdressers and physiotherapy/chiropractor clinics, amongst others.
Paddy's PickUp is more than a job.
It allows Paddy the opportunity to contribute to the community, hold meaningful employment, feel valued, feel connected, develop his social interaction, and his language.
To help Paddy, do your bit for inclusion, and give yourself a break from the pesky towels by contacting us today.
Seeing Paddy will be the highlight of your week.
The hope in time, is that Paddy’s Pick-up will grow in size and allow meaningful employment opportunities for others in Canberra who find it difficult to source employment through traditional means.
Paddy's PickUp is currently aligned with Matriarch Hair Studio. If you're in the area, drop in and learn more in person.
