New resources developed to help people prepare for employment

Posted 12/09/2019

The Employment Group in Thera East have put together a series of guides to help you find employment.

Graham Skidmore is Service Quality Director for Thera East and has lived experience of learning disability.

Graham has first-hand experience of the challenges people with a learning disability face in finding a job. He wanted to help other people find employment. He decided to set up an employment group where people could share advice and experiences.

The group has created four employment booklets which aim to help people with a learning disability to find work.

The booklets are guides to getting a job, whether that is paid or voluntary.

The Thera East employment group plan to hold workshops across Thera Group companies to share the booklets. People will be able to read through them and ask for help with finding employment.

Graham is also planning to create a video to go alongside the booklets, which will make the information more accessible to people.
