A safe home and specialist support for young women.
The people we work with have a physical disability, sensory impairment and/or an acquired brain injury, or are carers. They may have lifelong disabilities or have sustained trauma or gradual changes that have altered their employment options. Many seek employment for financial gain and to be independent but also to bring much-needed structure to their week.
WE'RE HERE IF YOU'D LIKE TO TALK TO US FOR ANY REASON.
Our Employment Specialists work with each person to identify realistic employment ambitions and the support they need to secure and succeed in a particular role. They bring extensive knowledge of employers across West Sussex and the opportunities they offer, which are the foundations of each job search.
Our Employment Specialists link their clients with employers and other services in West Sussex to ensure they get high-quality ongoing support appropriate to their individual needs. They can also support clients to understand and navigate any benefit changes employment may bring.
At Workability we know that helping individuals living in West Sussex to find the right job for them brings long-term practical, emotional and economic benefits. Therefore, we base every job search on each client’s individual skills and employment ambitions
Workability’s support has made a big difference to my employment. They have given me a voice which has resulted in positive changes, allowing me to manage my health and work better.
