Help to find and keep a job
Our Supported Employment Service can support you to obtain or maintain your employment through our Supported Employment Pathway or Individual Placement and Support (IPS). SES has a specialist team who are able to provide tailored support to people with a physical or learning disability, mental health issues, a long-term health condition, an acquired brain injury, sensory impairment, substance misuse issues and carers. Most are covered by the Equality Act 2010 and mean you’re entitled to extra support.
We also have a Transition Team Lead who works with partner agencies on behalf of young people with learning disabilities who are leaving school, and wish to find employment.
