Employment scheme is just the job for people with learning disabilities

June 30, 2016 12:52 pm

Adults who have a learning disability, Autism or Asperger’s Syndrome are being supported by an employment scheme run by Nottinghamshire County Council.

The i-work employment team has been successful in securing paid positions for around 250 people since its creation in 2008.

Nottinghamshire County Council works with a range of employers across the county including Derbyshire Hotel, Argos, Next, M&S, Costa, Wetherspoons, Co-op, Nottingham City Hospital, Sainsbury’s and Tesco.

The Council is now looking for other organisations in the county that can offer full or part time paid work for adults with learning disabilities or Asperger’s.

More information on scheme is available here or alternatively you can contact the team on 0115 963 2638.
