Being employed is about more than earning money. It’s about feeling valued, independent, fulfilled and included. We want to do everything we can to make this possible for more people with a learning disability.
We support Mencap and people with a learning disability to get the right support to access and stay in work and we are working to be part of a real change and make a difference to the lives of people with learning disabilities by supporting them into meaningful and long term employment.
Learning Disability Work Week is the perfect opportunity to share why you agree that employing people with a learning disability should be considered by all businesses and to promote that our organisation is an inclusive and welcoming place to work for all people, including people with a learning disability.
The campaign has been using the hashtag #HereIAm which promotes the message that people with a learning disability have a voice too.
