Employment support

We are committed to supporting disabled people to find and sustain work if they have the capacity to do so. Our approach is to work on removing the barriers to employment and engaging with employers to raise awareness of the contribution disabled people can make.

WECIL currently runs a free employment course for anyone who identifies as disabled, and provides Specialist Employability Support for people with a registered sight impairment.

Please find further details below about the course and support available.
