Sara Tadeu’s story is not unique at Jerónimo Martins. Over the years, the Group has opened its doors to people with disabilities through training and employment, thus encouraging egalitarian access to this segment of the job market. In 2006, a partnership with ACAPO (Portuguese Association for the Blind and Partially Sighted) accelerated this endeavour for inclusion: nearly 30 visually impaired people have been hired as part of the protocol.

Other partnerships have been established with institutions such as APSA (Portuguese Asperger’s Syndrome Association), Casa Pia de Lisboa (State Children’s Home Charity), SEMEAR (Institution for people with intellectual and development difficulties), and FOCUS (targeted for young people with significant disabilities), within the context of which the Group has employed 110 people with various disabilities.
