West Sussex tender opportunity

West Sussex County Council has launched a tender opportunity for a Supported Employment Service. The provider will be required to deliver the service across West Sussex targeting people with a lifelong disability or autism, who face complex barriers into employment. The service will address these barriers and help people to navigate and access the range of services available.

With this in mind, the supported employment service has been designed to support people:

  • Who are known to the Council’s Lifelong Service social care team, into paid employment.
  • To utilise mainstream employment services.
  • Who are already employed to retain jobs when they are facing difficulties.
