“Working means I’m learning new things - it builds your confidence, is good for your health and you make new friends! I could not have done it without Breakthrough”
If you’re a disabled person and looking for work, we can support you.
If you think you might benefit from our support, or would like more information, you can contact us at email@example.com, phone us on 0161 234 3950, or drop in to our office in person.
We provide person-centred support for disabled people to find work and live independently. This means we focus on the goals and barriers which each individual client identifies for themselves.
Our clients face a wide range of disabling barriers which make it harder for them to find long-term employment in a situation that works for them. We will support them to increase their independence and to remove these barriers.
In addition, we run a custom-made training course to develop essential skills and provide peer support, called The Pathway.
This is made up of two parallel twelve week courses of weekly group sessions. The first is focussed on independent living skills, the second is more directly focussed on pre-employment skills and getting ready to enter the workplace. Clients are given the freedom to identify their own needs, aspirations and the barriers that currently stand in their way, and are encouraged to use their shared experience to support one another. Pathways is funded with the support of the Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales.
We make sure our clients don’t just find work, but they find work which is sustainable, which they want to do, as part of a situation in which they can live independently.
