Participation in meaningful employment is vital for our physical and mental health, identity, self-worth, independence and social inclusion.
Diversity is critical to the success of any business. People with disability bring a range of skills, talents and abilities to the workplace and they are highly motivated and eager to learn.
Supporting young local people to build employability skills in the workplace helps to boost their self-esteem, expand their social networks and enhance their wellbeing.
For young adults with intellectual disability and autism, suitable work experience opportunities can be hard to come by. Employers may feel that they lack the know-how to support people with intellectual disability and autism, or that they don’t have suitable roles within their organisations.
At Right to Work, we understand your concerns. Our Managers will liaise with you to match the right Learner to the right tasks in your workplace. You can host a Learner for as little as two hours per week, and every Learner is accompanied by a Learning Support Worker who assists them in completing their tasks.
There is no cost in time or money to you – we simply require a space for our Learners to practice their skills and to experience the rewards of actively contributing to the workplace.
Your support and commitment to making our community more inclusive for young people with intellectual disability and autism will be acknowledged on our website and on our social media platforms.
