Other Services We Provide

We firmly believe that all adults with learning disabilities are capable of working or work experience with the right support and the correctly matched environment. Therefore, we also provide work experience opportunities for citizens and we are developing links to help support this. If you are an organisation that would like to be involved in our Employer Forum please do contact us. We can also provide some Learning Disability Awareness Training to local employers. We provide workshops to organisations already working with adults with learning disabilities, to help prepare citizens for work or work experience.
