Employability

The Employability Project is funded by the Big Lottery and works closely with the Employers’ forum on Disability. The project approaches employers and discusses opportunities they may have to offer in the form of visits, work experience placements or employment. Employers that we have worked with recently include:

  • MEARS
  • Hay and Kilner
  • INTU Metrocentre
  • Ouseburn Farm
  • Epicurus Events
  • Food Nation
  • The Environment Agency

The Employability Project aims to break down the barriers that employers envisage exist to employing disabled people.

It encourages regional organisations to be socially responsible and proactive by acting as a link between employers, supported employment organisations and disabled people.
