    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.

    Solution

    Work 4 All will increase these opportunities byĆ¢
    - 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
