Employ Me - Here I Am

Employ Me - Here I Am

Employ Me is Mencap’s employment programme developed with people with a learning disability and designed to help people with a learning disability to learn new skills and find work. The service is free to anyone unemployed with a learning disability over the age of 18.

“We will arrange an initial meeting to discuss what job you would like to do. During this meeting we will determine what level of support and training you may require to make sure we get the right match.

We believe the best way to support people with a learning disability into paid employment is through practical support. We will help you to identify vacancies and provide support on the job, while identifying any appropriate training needs you have.

We provide a Coordinator who will work with you to create and agree an Individual Employ Me programme of activities and will be on hand to offer support and advice throughout the process.”

For further information about this programme or to make a referral please contact Stuart Hunter. Employment Coordinator,Sheffield Mencap Lifestyle and Work
on 07769 916342 or email stuart.hunter@mencap.org.uk .

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.
