Amazing Work Experiences
Work is a vital part of everyday life, yet only 7% of people with learning disabilities are in paid employment. Our Vocational Support Service is overcoming this by supporting people to enjoy brilliant placements with the likes of including Everton Football Club, Widnes Vikings rugby league club, the NHS, British Heart Foundation, Costa and Bluecoat art gallery
Our team creates placements with supportive and inclusive employers, in roles that fulfil the talents and aspirations of people we support. They are specially trained to use a host of person-centred practices that give people exceptional work experiences, matching them up with the right Support Workers and the right workplace.
In this video, people we support explain how working has changed their lives – giving them new skills and real independence.
