Learning Disability Services – Employment
Area of Delivery: Plymouth and West Devon
If you have a learning disability or autism our services can help you get ready for and find paid work.
We will help you develop your confidence, skills and find the right job for you.
Once you are in paid work, we can continue to support you.
We can help you in lots of ways, including help to:
- Find short work experience placements
- Learn new skills
- Make a CV and apply for jobs
- Learn how to use the bus or train
- Settle into your new job
- Meet with you often to see how you are getting on
We can also signpost you to others for help with benefits advice, training or social clubs.
We work with people (of all ages) with a learning disability, autism and additional physical or sensory disabilities.
We are very happy to work with young people leaving school or college and with people who have never worked before.
How can I sign up?
You can contact us yourself or you can ask other people to contact us, including
- Parents and carers
- Day centres and schools
- Health and social care professionals
We are funded by Plymouth City Council but individuals can also purchase 1:1 employment support from their personal budgets.
