Our Employment Service

Many people with a disability need support to help them look for a job or to access employment and education opportunities, so our service has been specifically designed to meet their needs.

As well, employers can lack confidence in employing people with a disability, with many not aware of the Government's Access to Work scheme, which can help meet the cost of making reasonable adjustments in the workplace. We also work closely with employers in order to raise awareness and to promote the many benefits of employing people with a disability, including having a diverse workforce. We can also provide further support to employees and their employers, such as support in accessing DWP's Access to Work funding, employee guidance and employer/employee mentoring.
