Having a job gives us all a real sense of purpose. It’s no different for adults with learning disabilities. Those who work are more self-confident and can enjoy greater independence.
Work makes individuals feel part of the wider community and our Adult Employment Programme works in partnership with local businesses to find and create job opportunities.
Employers tell us having an individual placed by Kisharon changes their work environment for the better.
New recruits are enthusiastic, friendly and keenly relish the opportunity to work. It’s immensely rewarding for all as new skills are learnt and tasks achieved.
Watching an individual’s self esteem grow over time is a priceless experience. Find out about one employer’s experience in the film below.
We specialise in supporting those furthest away from the open employment market and looking for a couple of hours’ work a week.
To date more than 50 people have been placed in jobs – in supermarkets, schools, banks, solicitors, estate agents and many more locations.
We support employers and the employee to ensure the job is done well and provide travel training so new recruits learn the route to work and gain the confidence to travel on their own. The retention rate is high. Below are just some of the companies who have offered a job to an adult we support.
Our aim is to help those with learning disabilities lead happy and fulfilling lives.
