Engage to Change

New Website

Learning Disability WalesEngage to Change have recently launched their new website – http://www.engagetochange.org.uk/

The Engage to Change project is currently running across the whole of Wales to support young people aged 16-25 with a learning disability and/or autism into paid work placements lasting 6-12 months.

We aim to help 1000 of these young people achieve their full potential by developing experience and transferable skills in the workplace through a person-centred approach which will give them further opportunities and enable them to compete in the labour market. To do this we are working with 800 employers over five years, offering job coaching and employment support to both young person and employer.

This project is made possible through funding from the Big Lottery Fund in partnership with Welsh Government. Please visit the new website for further information.
