Our Employability and Skills team supports people with a learning disability and/or autistic people on their journey to paid work, further training and/or volunteering.

Only 5% of people with learning disabilities in the UK are employed. We have developed an Employment Strategy looking to address this disparity and increase the number of people with disabilities into work.

We have a strong track record of delivering award-winning employment programmes to adults with learning disabilities and autistic people through employment support and skills training, work experience opportunities with local employers, peer mentoring and progression to employment, volunteering, education and/or training.

Free Employability and Skills Training

Grace Eyre is delighted to be able to support the development and delivery of free courses to develop skills and provide experience that can improve employability.

This includes our Employability and Skills workshops, which help attendees build confidence and discover their particular interests, carry out some real work experience, and learn a wide range of skills in preparation for finding employment.

We also run Money and Numbers courses, which take a fun approach to everyday financial tasks to help people feel more in control of their cash, bank accounts, spending and budgeting. The course is held at accessible venues in Brighton & Hove.

Be a Disability Confident Leader

Disability Confident organisations play a leading role in changing attitudes for the better.

They change behaviour and cultures in their own businesses, networks and communities, and reaping the benefits of inclusive recruitment practices.

We would very much like to offer support to other local organisations with Disability Confident status, as well as those who’d like to take their first steps on this route.
