The Employability @ Hedleys works closely with the Employers’ forum on Disability – 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:
- Hay and Kilner
- INTU Metrocentre
- Ouseburn Farm
- Epicurus Events
- Food Nation
- The Environment Agency
The Employability @ Hedleys 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.
