New employment hub for Devon

A new service to help provide meaningful employment opportunities for people with a disability is set to be launched in Devon. The Disability Employment Hub is a collaboration between the Devon County Council, Learn Devon and Jobcentre Plus.

It seeks to build on ‘Ready When You Are’ campaign launched last year. The initiative encouraged businesses to become ‘Disability Confident’ by considering employing people with learning disabilities, autism and mental health issues. It also raised awareness of the advantages to employing people with disabilities and to highlight the wide range of support that is available to employers and candidates to help them with recruitment.

The new Disability Employment Hub service will include training, a support network for employers and online information and resources.
