Just 6% of people with a learning disability are in paid work but 77% of Action For Kids trainees who gained a paid job are still in employment. Our work, works!

Upon leaving school or college students can join our Life & Work programme which aims to support young disabled adults into paid work. Our curriculum balances bespoke work placements, accredited learning, travel training and everyday life skills to ultimately gain paid employment.

We have an excellent success rate and each trainee is encouraged to lead the process and learn at their own pace. We believe that with the right support and the correct role everyone can work if they want to. To find out more about joining our Life & Work programme follow this link.

We also work closely with employers throughout the process to ensure that they too have the support they need to make the match work. To find out more about becoming an inclusive employer follow this link.
