Special Needs Hotel is a documentary series that follows the astonishing stories of a young staff with a huge range of disabilities.
Foxes operates not only as a competitive hotel but also as a training academy for its staff, who stay for 2-3 years on-site. The three part series, told largely from the students’ point of view, will look at those just beginning at the hotel, plus others in their final year gearing up for jobs outside Foxes and facing the challenge of living independently. Like any other hotel in the area competing for business, Foxes Hotel has to be at the top of its game and at the mercy of TripAdvisor.
These teenagers have the same goals in life as any other and like most of their age, enjoy having a good time. However these young people face extra challenges through their disabilities; and added to that there is a layer of prejudice to get through too. 90% of Foxes’ students get a job at the end of it, but the path is paved with tragedies and triumphs.
Recent success stories include Olivia who, despite having Downs Syndrome, is now working two jobs in catering, and autistic Dan, who will take part in the Special Olympics next year. Special Needs Hotel shows people with extraordinary and fascinating stories.
