Having a job is about more than earning money. It’s about feeling valued, independent and fulfilled.
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.
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.
