Supporting our Employees' Needs

We provide supported employment opportunities for disabled people, in particular those with vision impairment. 

We are proud to be an employer of disabled people and we are a Disability Confident employer.

Employment Support is provided by our trained managers. They work with two groups of people. The first group are long term staff with disabilities who have a permanent role, and the second are short term employees on a one year government scheme called Work Choice who receive intensive support.

Around 24% of the workers on the Work Choice scheme are on the autism spectrum and 41% have a visual impairment. Our managers have regular meetings with them to check that they're happy and well supported in their work. They also discuss their future goals and are there to help them with career advice and planning.
