Mum's struggle to find a job for her disabled daughter

Karen Taylor was struggling to find a job for her 18-year-old daughter Lily, who has global developmental delay. She said that she "just wanted someone to give Lily a chance of work".

Now Lily has got a job with her mum at The Sussex Produce Company café. BBC 5 Live Breakfast's Stephen Chittenden went to meet them and Head Chef, Don.

Karen said: "I think it's an incredible opportunity, the burden of trying to find a young person like Lily, a job, is enormous because you don't want to ask, because you're afraid to ask."
