Aspire Support for Employment

Aspire Support for Employment helps Adults with Learning Disabilities to obtain and sustain mainstream, open employment.

We aim to support our Customers to find the right job for them which is paid at the the national minimum wage or above. We believe that with the right work ethic and desire any barrier to employment can be overcome.

The Employment Service that we provide is based upon what works nationally and what has been recommended by both BASE and NDTI.

All of the Aspire team have received specialist employment training and work to the National Occupation Standards for Supported Employment.

Our Advisors are based across Somerset and we have robust links with education, employers and partners.

We are currently providing job coaching at Project Search sites in Yeovil Hospital and Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton.

We provide;

  • Support to obtain employment
  • Vocational profiling & CV building
  • Support to retain employment
  • Support to change Employment
  • Support Self Employment

You need to be a Somerset resident over 18 with a referral from a Social Worker. We can undertake work for other local authorities though there is a cost for this.
