Firms honoured for disabled work

Companies in Jersey have been honoured for their work breaking down prejudice and encouraging the employment of disabled people.

The Jersey Employment Trust (JET) named Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust as the Employer of the Year at its "Able to Work" ceremony on Wednesday night.

Three people from JET have been working with the firm's landscape department.

Carol Kemp collected the award, and said: "They bring skills that we haven't necessarily got."

Nine other firms in the island were also recognised as outstanding employers.
