Supporting the needs of individuals
Workable (NI) is delivered by a range of providers contracted by the Department for Communities (DfC). These organisations have extensive experience of meeting the vocational needs of people with disabilities.
Workable (NI) tailors support to individuals to meet their specific needs. The provision can include support such as:
- a Job Coach to assist the disabled worker and their colleagues adapt to the needs of the particular job
- developmental costs to the employer
- extra training
- disability awareness training
Workable (NI) case studies are available on the DfC website.
If you would like more information on Workable (NI) and details on how to access the programme, you should contact the Employment Service Advisers based in your local Jobs & Benefits office/JobCentre.
