Developing supported training and employment opportunities for people with learning disabilities and mental ill health.
September 2010 - September 2013
Charity information: Prospect Housing and Support Services
People with learning disabilities and mental ill health are often unable to access employment. It is often incorrectly perceived that they would be unable to carry out tasks effectively and they consequently are unable to compete for available work successfully.Work 4 All will increase these opportunities.
Work 4 All will increase these opportunities byâ
- marketing additional manual services
- establishing a training programme with options for qualifications
- recruiting and training new volunteers and staff to both employment options
- Sell a range of administrative support services to facilitate events for organisations
- Increase customers for all services each year so that the project is self financing by March 2013
To improve employment opportunities for people with learning disabilities
Activities» By providing a range of supported employment opportunities
Success will be...12 new supported employment places created by Work 4 All, and Work 4 All becoming fully self financing within 5 years through increased business
Increased inependence for people with learning disabilities gained through new skills and improved confidence.
The risk of insufficient support will be addressed by employing an additional team leader to ensure that there is always sufficient staff cover.
We will be happy to report as donors require, with a minimum of an annual progress report.
