Who we are
Supported employment is about helping people with a learning disability or autism.
The aim is to:
- discover what type of jobs you like
- learn new skills
- get a job and keep it
Supported employment can also help if you want to work for yourself. This is called being self-employed.
Breakthrough is a supported employment service in Bracknell Forest.
We want to help you:
- find a job that you like
- achieve your work goals
- achieve your full potential
We believe everyone has the right to work and be paid for it.
We will make sure any reasonable adjustments are made to support a person’s work journey.
Our projects are available if you are willing to commit to putting in time and hard work.
You can learn about:
- social skills
Born Anxious – retail
This is a great retail project. Born Anxious have given us stock of their clothing items so that we can work on a pop-up shop to sell their clothes.
You can get involved in advertising, customer services and working as a team.
Jealotts Hill - community landshare
We have a plot at the landshare where we grow fruit and vegetables.
Although gardening can be hard work, the Landshare is also a great space which is safe, quiet and peaceful.
Upcycling is another popular project.
We take donated furniture and make them better so that they can be used again, instead of being thrown away.
You can get crafty with our Patchwork Hope project.
You can get involved by making the crafts as well as selling them.
