Supported employment

Our Supported Employment team helps people with learning disabilities, autism or aspergers living in East Ayrshire, who are looking for employment of at least 16 hours per week.

Anyone who has been formally looked after by a local authority, in the family home with support from a social worker, in a residential or foster home or in kinship care with friends or relatives, also qualifies for support.

Our job coaches identify the right person for the right job and gives support to both employer and employee to help make the transition into employment as smooth as possible.
