Specialist Employment Support

Our Specialist Employment Support (SES) Start Back is a government-supported, voluntary programme for people with sight loss who are looking to find or keep a job.

Following a referral from Job Centre Plus, we will meet with you and assess how best to prepare you for a new job.

We'll help you to identify your needs and support you to become ready for work, and we'll continue to support you in work, so you stay in your job long-term.

After receiving our specialist support over a three month period you could be ready to move into work or another provision.  

If you have sight loss and would like help to find a job, then we can help you.

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 Equality Advisor at your local Jobcentre Plus to refer you to us.
