Staff from IT consultancy 3RS IT Solutions have pledged their support for Teamwork Trust. Find out why, what is planned and the difference their support will make …


Husband and wife team, Stephen and Leila Souch, who run 3RS, understand the challenges faced by people living with autism as their son, Reuben, is living with the condition.


Leila said: “We want to do everything in our power to support the work Teamwork Trust does, while raising awareness and providing opportunities for people who are living with autism, learning difficulties or mental health issues at the same time.


“Inspired by Reuben, the whole team at 3RS IT Solutions is coming together as one big family to take part in a series of fundraising events throughout 2024 which are being chosen by followers of the company’s social media accounts. We couldn’t be more grateful for their support – it means everything.”


In January, Stephen and Services Operations Manager Ethan Malvern took part in a Bake-Off event to support Teamwork Trust.

 As novice bakers, with very little experience, both were set the challenge of baking a Naked Victoria Sponge with their creations being judged by Nene Business Centre Manager, Dalize Van Zyl and Tina Henerson, the business centre’s Head of Kitchen.

 In the end, it was Stephen who impressed the judges most, emerging victorious with his sponge which was decorated with strawberries.

Stephen said: “To be able to take part in this challenge, have some fun and raise money at the same time was fantastic and we are incredibly grateful to Tina, Helen and Dalize at Nene Business Centre for helping us to make it happen.”

The team now plan to take part in a 5k run around Stanwick Lakes, with two teams competing for the win. Visitors to 3RS IT Solutions social media channels in the coming months will also have the chance to decide which challenges the team will face next.



Work experience


Teamwork Trust service user Cullen joined the team at 3RS IT Solutions for work experience in November last year and has become a familiar face within the team.

He has carried out a wide range of tasks from logging tickets to setting up new users and repairing laptops and desktops.

Leila said: “Cullen has become a real asset to our team. Cullen is a fast learner and it’s been brilliant to have him here. Cullen works closely with Ethan who has been managing him for the last couple of weeks. He is now starting to work on bigger tickets and seems to be enjoying his time with us. It has been a fantastic opportunity for both Cullen and for us.

“It has really helped to raise awareness of autism in the workplace and the fact with a little extra support anything is possible.”
