SHARP Employability Skills is based in Gloucester Docks and provides support to people with learning difficulties wanting to work.   Working closely with the Gloucestershire County Council Forwards Employment team we provide job coaching to support people into work throughout Gloucestershire.

We are currently involved in a project sourcing work placements in the care sector for people with learning difficulties (the customer).  We match placements to the customers needs, experience and abilities; source funding for the placement and  provide a supportive job coach throughout.  It is hoped that a successful placement will lead to a permanent position for the customer.
