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 or has a long-term health condition.

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak we had to suspend our course Working Together. We started running an adapted version of the course in May 2020. This is taking place online, please find information below under “Working Together”.

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

Working Together is our FREE 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 for example. You do not need a formal diagnosis to access the course.

“This course has been the highlight of my week. I feel valued here.”

Next courses

Our employment course Working Together is usually once a week for 12 weeks from 10am until 2pm, in person.

While we cannot run face-to-face during the pandemic, WECIL is pleased to announce we will be delivering a bite-sized version of our course online. This will be once a week for 6 weeks, for 2 hours. As usual, our course is about learning employment skills but also developing a peer support network and we hope it will be helpful for people during this period of isolation.

We will have small groups of 5 people maximum.

Our next course will start on Thursday 24th of June 2021 1.30pm to 3.30pm.

  1. Reasonable Adjustments in work and the Access to Work scheme.
  2. How to disclose your condition/disability to an employer and when to do it (Positive Health Disclosure)
  3. In-work behaviours and relationships including in-work behaviours when working from home
  4. Skills matching and identifying a career path
  5. Travel training
  6. Peer support
