“Vita Europe: Social enterprises boom despite lack of ad hoc law”

Excerpt…
Poland: Doing things different: an enterprise for people with autism
Twenty four adults who, because of their autism, would have never found a job in Poland’s open labour market earn a living thanks to a social enterprise founded and run by the Synapsis Foundation, that provides one on one assistance with instructors and psychologists. The Different Things workshop is made up of several sections, including professional printing and bookbinding services, ceramic designs, and stained glass and woodcraft artifacts. The products are available online (http://rzeczyrozne.pl). Although the enterprise is struggling to reach financial sustainability, the enterprise is one of its kind in Poland and hopes to be a model of best practice for other organizations that work with the disabled.

Summer is with us here in the UK with soaring temperatures and balmy nights, a very welcome change from “the Summer that never was – 2007” :)! If you live in the UK, you’ll know what I mean. However, the change in season and routine can throw many on the spectrum off course, so to hopefully give us a few pointers to help along the way, those over at Suite 101 have been busy compiling a list or two…
