The Employment & Community Support Team meets with service users, listens to their specific career goals and then assists in all aspects of securing and continuing employment in the community. This process often leads to paid employment, job placements or meaningful volunteer activities that give people an opportunity to participate in the community.
Located in the Monty Parks Centre building, the Supported Employment team currently represents over 100 individuals with intellectual disabilities in a wide range of community based workplaces.
The staff act as agents to identify work experience opportunities as well as paid employment. Staff may respond to requests from employers who are looking for trained employees to hire, or who are able to offer volunteers the chance to participate in a temporary activity.
Supported Employment & Community Support staff develop and maintain ongoing contact with and support for both individuals and employers.
