A little gate to a bigger future

Only 6% of adults with learning disabilities are in paid employment.
This means 94% are in unpaid work, day care or stuck at home.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

At Little Gate we believe that everyone has the right to train for, find and thrive in paid employment.
We work with families and businesses across East Sussex and Kent to make this vision a reality.
Help us and you’re helping to change lives.

What we do

Supported Employment

We find paid jobs for adults with learning disabilities and autism, giving them all the support they need to learn the role, adapt to their new workplace and become a real asset to their employer.

Supported Apprenticeships

We give adults with learning disabilities and autism the opportunity to train ‘on the job’ in paid apprenticeships. We work closely with employers and specialist education providers to ensure everyone involved gets the most from these wonderful learning opportunities.
