We recently teamed up with The Grange, a friendly and welcoming organisation supporting people with disabilities to achieve their potential and live independent and fulfilling lives.
In order to have people with learning disabilities at the heart of everything we do we have joined forces to create a team who fulfil orders. We now have people with learning disabilities present through every stage of our business, from inception, to publishing and to getting the final book through your letterbox.
Here’s what the Grange had to say:
"Our book order fulfilment enterprise in partnership with the publisher, Books Beyond Words, is going well. The team of 6 people and their tutor Rachel Casey have handled 29 orders in the first two months from as far afield as Canada and The Netherlands.
The biggest order was for 82 books from Kent NHS. Books Beyond Words are for people who find pictures easier to understand than words. They cover important topics such as health issues, illness and death in the family, relationships and more."
We hope this partnership continues to grow. The Grange are currently fulfilling all orders once a week, so any order you place will be shipped on the following Wednesday. Please take a look at what’s currently on offer here.
