Ellingham: Experts in the employment of people with disabilities since 1984.
Our Employment Programmes are designed for long term unemployed people who have a range of disabilities, and who have the desire and potential to gain employment.
Like anyone else, the clients we serve have ambitions and aspirations to live fulfilling lives and have no wish to stay or rely on the state benefit system.
We support people with a wide variety of disabilities such as:
- Learning disability
- Sensory impairment
- Physical impairment
- Mental health
- Medical condition
The definition of disability is "a physical or mental impairment that has a substantial and long-term negative effect on your ability to do normal daily activities".
Our objective is to support our clients to obtain employment on an equal footing to their non-disabled colleagues and to assist employers to recruit from a more diverse talent pool.
We work with people aged 18 - 60, and actively seek paid jobs and/or supported employment placements for those clients who have shown commitment and a realistic concept of the world of work.
