Supported employment

The main focus of our work at Little Gate Farm is helping learning disabled and autistic adults into paid employment. We know that work brings financial benefits and improves self-esteem, physical and mental health and friendship.

We offer a Supported Employment Programme for learning disabled and autistic adults. We work closely with employers and with learning disabled adults and their families to find appropriate job opportunities in the local area. Our job coaches support our work trainees in the workplace until they are confident enough to work independently.

 

We do not rush this process and during their time at the farm, each individual work trainee will work towards goals and develop both practical work skills and personal qualities that are individual to them and are linked with their own interests and career aspirations.

For more information on supported employment please contact us or speak to Claire at the farm on: 01797 260125 or 07811464202
