We believe that if people are to live independently (as their disabilities allow) then they should be given the chance to get a job and earn a wage. We accept that not everyone will get a paid job but this should not prevent people from being given a chance to have a go and experience what work is all about.

“ 1.5 million people with learning disabilities in the UK have a lot to contribute in the workplace - if only they could enter it ”




This website is designed as a resource for:

> Anyone with an interest in enabling people with learning difficulties and learning disabilities to move towards or into employment

> Businesses and employers who may be interested in offering an opportunity to someone with a learning difficulty or learning disability

> People with learning difficulties and learning disabilities often experience the most difficulty in getting a job:

> 17% of people with learning disabilities who are of working age have a paid job - Adults with learning difficulties in England 2003/20044, National Statistics & NHS Health and Social Care Information Centre (2004)

> About one in ten people with learning disabilities who are in touch with services are doing any form of paid work - Valuing People - what do the numbers tell us? (2005)

> About one in 20 people with learning disabilities have an unpaid job - Adults with learning difficulties in England 2003/2004, National Statistics & NHS Health and Social Care Information Centre (2004)

The website provides information on the support services available to both businesses and to individuals and case studies to celebrate some of the many success stories.
