eMploY-ABILITY Mission Statement

Across our programme we will work together with those furthest from the labour market,  to deliver the best support and outcomes for our participants.

We will be recognising their individual needs with a tailored package of barrier-busting and support interventions – taking them on a journey into work, training or actively seeking work,  moving at their pace and with their goals in mind.

We will build a programme that raises long-term awareness and confidence in underrepresented groups and those with additional barriers, that fosters greater social inclusion both in terms of economic and community participation –  building a legacy for continued positive change and outcomes for the community and beneficiaries.
