Shaw Trust's Milton Keynes centre supported Louis Francis to set up his own business, making him the first deaf stone mason in the United Kingdom. Louis says: Without the support of the Work Choice programme, I would not have had the confidence to set up my own business. The scheme equipped me with the skills and know-how to draft a business plan and understand codes of practice, laws and regulations.
