We provide a range of employment opportunities for people with learning disabilities in the Trafford area. We can support people into employment in lots of different settings. We work with each person and the employer to make sure we get it right.
We work with each person to find out what sort of work they are interested in and to create a work profile for them. We also work in partnership with parents, carers, local colleges and employers. We always take people’s benefits into consideration.
Usually, to start with, we support people to find work placements. These tend to be unpaid and are usually for a fixed period. After this, we help people to negotiate permanent paid work. This does not necessarily mean full-time work. Some people may only want to work part-time. Others may start off only working a few hours and increase their hours once they are used to working.
The service offers:
- Support into paid work
- Vocational profiling
- Job search support
- Soft Skills Development
- Work Experience
- One to one tailored job coaching
- In work support
We also have two social enterprises in Trafford. These provide employment opportunities for people with learning disabilities in a setting that suits them.
Both services are run under the banner of UR in Business. They are a disability consultancy, UR Consultants, and UR Sorted, a mailing and fulfillment service staffed by people with learning disabilities.
