About Mencap Employ Me

Employ Me is Mencap's specialist programme of support to help people with learning disabilities/difficulties progress to paid employment. The best way to do this is through practical employment and vocational support. Employ Me provides this in the form of individual packages of support tailored to each persons plans and support needs. Support is provided on a one to basis in accessible local community venues such as local libraries, job centres and community centres for access to IT resources and private meeting rooms. We will work with each person to find out what job they want to do and what support they need to do it. We will then agree the steps that need to be taken to achieve this. We will concentrate on finding paid job opportunities, but if people need more time and support to be ready for work, we will look at placements, training (e.g travel training, Food Hygiene certificates) and volunteer opportunities to develop the skills and experience
