Friendz & Co. was founded back in 2017 by three young adults with Downs Syndrome and their families.


After years of witnessing stigma against those with disabilities in the work environment, the team wanted to ensure that opportunities were provided for those wanting and willing to learn.

With many benefits including improving confidence, reducing stress and enhancing communication skills, Friendz & Co strives to provide valuable experiences for those who need it.

Friendz & Co is located at Bottesford Town FC in Lincolnshire.

"There is no greater disability in society than the inability to see a person as more."
