Supported employment success

The Discovery Supported Employment Team started conversations with nineteen businesses in September about ways in which the team could help to support individuals with a learning disability or autism into work.

We believe that anyone can become employed if they are motivated, given the right job and the right support. And that’s where we can help.

The team now advises 139 businesses in Somerset.

In addition to these new conversations, there were also eight successful interviews for paid employment during September.

Morrison’s Distribution, Kingsleigh Care Home and Rusty Road 2 Recovery all received disability awareness, equality and diversity and reasonable adjustments training.
