Who are Team Domenica?
Just 5.1% of people with learning disabilities are employed in England. Far too many are missing out on the basic right to aspire to a career, along with the wider social networks, better emotional and physical health, and increased independence that comes from having a job. They share the same aspirations as everyone else and they want nothing more than the opportunity to demonstrate their full potential.
At Team Domenica, we strongly believe that young people with learning disabilities have the right to work, to lead fulfilling and purposeful lives, to have their individual gifts and talents recognised, and to feel included as valued members of society.
Based in in Brighton & Hove, Team Domenica offers young people with learning disabilities - our candidates- the opportunity to change their lives through a programme of education, work-based training in our cafes, work experience and wellbeing.
What we're doing is working. Since opening an amazing 84% of our candidates have moved into paid employment rate through our Supported Internship Programme.

Our candidates challenge themselves almost every day in their training. So we’re inviting you to challenge yourself too. Participants will be able to choose from a range of distances. After all, a challenge is personal to you.
Distances: 50m | 100m | 400m | 800m | 1.6k (1 mile) | 2.5k | 5k (3 miles) | ‘Dip your toe’ (getting into the water)
All participants will receive:
- a reusable Great Lengths swim cap
- fundraising support from our team
- to reduce the waste, an edible medal on completing their personal challenge, expertly made by our young people in our training cafés
What to bring:
This is a swim event at an outdoor pool. Please bring your usual swim kit for outdoor swimming conditions.
Public transport is recommended as parking is very limited.
Essential additional info:
When our Co-Women team is formed, a JustGiving team page will be set up that all participants will have access to. This is one link that everyone will use to share with friends and family, and on social media to raise funds for Team Domenica.
All profits from ticket sales via Co-Women will be donated to the charity.
