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.

Please be advised that due to the Covid-19 outbreak we have had to suspend our employment courses, we will be reviewing this as the situation changes. Changes to WECIL services. 

WECIL currently runs a free employment course for anyone who identifies as disabled or has a long-term health condition, and provides Specialist Employability Support for people with a registered sight impairment.

We also support businesses and organisation by providing consultancy and training. Visit our business page for more information about the services we offer.
