Get involved with Learning Disability at work!

Tell us about your experiences! We'd love to share your stories about people with a learning disability and work.

Are you a person with a learning disability who has a job?

Have you helped someone with a learning disability find work?

Maybe you’ve done work experience and it’s really helped?

 

We want to hear from you!

Could you provide a work experience placement?

Are you an employer? Could you provide a work experience placement for someone with a learning disability? If so, please please get in contact.

Work experience can provide a great boost in confidence for someone with a learning disability, it's also a vital step on the road to finding employment.
