Breakthrough supported employment
Breakthrough is there to help people with a learning disability and autism to prepare for, achieve and maintain meaningful employment.
Can I get support?
Referrals are made to us through a social care team.
What will we do?
We will invite you in for an informal meeting and find out what you want and any costs involved.
Then we will set and agree action plans with you. These will be reviewed at regular intervals.
We will help you to look for suitable employment opportunities. These can include:
- paid work
- voluntary work
- work experience placements
- self employment
We aim to help people to develop employability skills and independence and can help with:
- job seeking
- filling out application forms
- CVs and covering letters
- work ethics
- travel training
- interview preparation
Our approach offers 1 to 1 support and pre-employment training. We offer interview and initial 'on the job' support.
We have good links with the job centre and work programme providers. We strive to build up a natural support network within the work place.
