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.

Working Together is our FREE 12-week employability course.

The course is designed to support people over 18 who identify as disabled or have a long-term health condition. This includes learning difficulties, anxiety, depression or dyslexia. You do not need a formal diagnosis to access the course.

The course will help you build practical skills in:

  • CV & application writing for jobs and volunteering
  • Preparing for interviews
  • Developing a peer support system
  • Discovering what options you have
