Dawsongroup bus and coach Provides Transport Support for MK SNAP
Milton Keynes-based MK SNAP (Special Needs Advancement Project) is an award-winning charity helping vulnerable adults to develop life skills and achieve their goals. Registered as a charity in 1992, MK SNAP is an accredited learning provider offering a range of qualifications and courses specifically designed for adults with learning disabilities.
Over the years, MK SNAP has grown from strength to strength, becoming an important resource for adults with learning disabilities in Milton Keynes and its surrounding areas.
The charity offers a wide range of services and qualifications in hospitality, catering, and customer service, as well as courses in IT and digital skills, horticulture, and art and design.
In addition to its educational curriculum, MK SNAP offers a well-supported employment service that helps learners to find and maintain employment in the local community.
The impact of the charity has not gone unnoticed, and it has received several awards and recognitions for its work and dedication to the community. In 2017, it received the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service. This award is the highest honour that can be given to a charity and is a testament to its commitment and the impact that it has had.
To continue to provide much-needed support and opportunities for its learners, MK SNAP relies on donations and support from volunteers. Working closely with local businesses enables the charity to provide opportunities for its learners to gain valuable work experience, and it strongly encourages the community to support its cause.
Through our Corporate Social Responsibility Program, Open Hands, we have recently partnered with MK SNAP to support them in making a difference. We have provided the charity with the donation of an accessible minibus. The minibus will help improve the charity’s ability to support the local community by providing safe and reliable transportation for learners to access its services.
“Dawsongroup bus and coach is excited to work with MK SNAP to make a difference. Their support of the local community is inspiring, and I am sure that our partnership will have a positive impact on the charity and its learners,” said Paul Sainthouse, Managing Director of Dawsongroup bus and coach.
MK SNAP’s commitment to improving the lives of vulnerable adults in the local community is inspiring. With the support of local businesses and volunteers, MK SNAP can continue to make a real difference in the lives of those who need it most.
“We were introduced to MK SNAP and the good work they do to support adults with learning disabilities by the Mayor of Milton Keynes, Councillor Amanda Marlow,” said Steve Miller, Dawsongroup CEO. “Dawsongroup is delighted to be supporting MK SNAP by donating a minibus and looking at ways to support the charity on a long-term basis. Our People Services department are encouraging our employees to donate some of their time through our employer-supported volunteering days. We have also introduced them to one of our renewable energy providers who will install solar panels to reduce the soaring costs of operating their facility.”
