Four Biz group members

Help Support Our Business “Biz Group”

The biz Group is a group of local adults with Down syndrome.  The group faced unsurmountable barriers to obtaining any kind of volunteer work and or employment.

Opportunities within the local  community are diminutive with the statistics suggesting that one in 20 businesses will not even look at hiring anyone with a disability.

These significant challenges exists for anyone with a disability, including those with Down syndrome. 

These opportunities are rare and difficult to obtain.  Therefore, this group started their own business called the Biz Group with support of the Down Syndrome Association of Peterborough.
