Cosgrove Care Supported Employment

Negotiating the world of work can be challenging and intimidating for those with disabilities. Cosgrove offers a variety of resources to help you pursue employment opportunities that are right for you.

Our supported employment opportunities offer work-based learning opportunities in our local communities. Some of the ways in which we can help include:

  • Raising aspirations and ensuring a successful transition from school into employment or further education.
  • Increasing confidence, motivation, social inclusion, self-esteem, work readiness and friendships.
  • Offering helpful advice and information to support families during transition towards adulthood and independent living
  • Helping young people achieve a nationally recognised qualification.
  • Working with local schools to deliver opportunities for pupils who would otherwise be excluded from this important part of the school curriculum.
  • Increasing social inclusion and community awareness of the skills and abilities of people with additional needs.
  • Supporting local employers with advice to make their workplace accessible for people with additional needs, and access to qualified employees and job coaching for new employees.
  • Working with local authorities to offer supported employment and training for adults with additional needs who would otherwise be more likely to be amongst the long-term unemployed.
