Specialist Employability Support

Our Specialist Employability Support (SES) programme works with people who have visual impairments and complex employment support needs.

Some clients may have other disabilities or conditions alongside their visual impairment so, as with our other programmes, we provide a person-centred approach to our support.

The programme is designed to assist clients to find employment or self-employment through an individually tailored combination of guidance, learning in the workplace, work experience and training.

In-work support is also provided both to individuals who find employment and their employers to ensure that they stay in work. We started this programme in November 2015 and currently work with a small number of referrals.

SES is a flexible programme that we will tailor to your requirements. It's available throughout the UK and Leonard Cheshire Disability delivers the project in the following regions:

  • Highlands, Islands, Clyde Coast and Grampian, Scotland
  • North, North East, West and Central London

If you would like support, ask the disability employment advisor at your local Jobcentre Plus to refer you to us.
