Engage To Change Roadshows

Learning Disability WalesEbbw Vale and Carmarthen

Free Events

Engage to Change supports young people aged 16-25 with a learning disability and/or autism into paid work placements lasting 6-12 months.

Engage to Change will be in Ebbw Vale and Carmarthen bringing together people with a learning disability and autism, parents and carers, employers, local businesses, decision-makers and more to let you know how this project can benefit you.

This event is for:

  • People who provide support

Come along to find out how the project could benefit the people you work with through supported employment, from greater financial independence, to increased confidence and an expanded social circle. They can self-refer or you can refer them to us.

  • Employers

Drop in to the Roadshow to meet the team, get a taste of how it all works, and hear from other employers who have taken part and felt the benefits of welcoming Engage to Change participants to their workforce.

  • People with a learning disability and/or autism

Engage to Change may be able to support you to learn new skills and gain experience in the workplace, all with the aim of moving into paid employment. We look forward to having you at the event!

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.
