Working with Communities
We offer advice and support to community services, such as clubs, leisure providers, retailers, charities, social enterprises and public and private sector companies, to enable them to be as inclusive as possible for disabled people.
How can we help?
Advise and support you with inclusive practice, ensuring disabled people can fully utilise community facilities and services
Make connections within communities to facilitate enhanced access/provision of services for disabled people
Advise and support you with the creation of volunteering and work placements
Provide on-the-job support for disabled people to access employment opportunities.
How we work
When you get in touch, we will have an initial phone call about what you want to achieve and how we can help. We will then arrange a meeting to discuss your requirements in detail. We will then put a detailed plan together with full costs.
You will pay an hourly rate for each hour/part hour, which will vary depending on the support you require. Details will be provided after an initial meeting. You will be invoiced for our services in stages, which will be agreed on before any work is done.
Why do we want to help?
We want to work with you because we’ve been there! Our two founders have had long careers working with local communities, disability charities and social enterprises. They have also raised their own disabled young person to the point of work and leaving home; so they know the pitfalls, the heartache, the lack of ambition and the barriers facing disabled people.
We want to help local communities to offer disabled people the same opportunities that we all expect - a feeling of belonging, feeling valued and listened to. Being able to take part, have choices and enjoying their community. We want young people with learning disabilities to be able to live as independently as possible, work and have the ability to give something back.
