I’m the Service Coordinator for ASpire (Autism West Midlands) and I work on an employment support programme as part of a partnership under Advance Employment.
We are having an open day on the 12th June and I thought it might be of interest to some of your service users.
There will be several organisations there aside from ourselves including Action for Blind, Birmingham Rathbone, Momentum (The Brain Injury specialists), Sandwell Council, Landau and Shelforce.
It is an opportunity for anyone who is thinking about work but might need some support in getting into employment to come down and meet with us all and fine out more about it.
We are also offering free awareness training sessions throughout the day which could be of interest to you and other people at Trident Reach from an employer’s point of view too as we will be giving advice about looking after staff with disabilities in the workplace,
Please email me if you want copies of our flyers with details of the event. If you could forward on to anyone else within your organisation you feel might be interested in this I would be really grateful.
