Supported employment

Ready Willing and Able logo

Ready, Willing and Able is our supported employment programme for people with learning disabilities and people who are autistic. We support people who are looking to move into work, develop their career, realise their ambitions and reach their full potential.

At the heart of Ready, Willing and Able is inclusion, with the person always at the centre of the programme. We have over 220 years of experience supporting people with learning disabilities, autistic people and people with sight loss to achieve extraordinary things, and our Ready, Willing and Able programme now enables participants to realise their ambitions around paid employment. It also gives employers the opportunity to recruit enthusiastic and talented individuals who will become valued employees.
