Welcome to EalingHELP Minimize

A very timely sequel to my last post on this page. This week in Learning Disability Week and the focus is on employment.

Only 6% of people with a learning disability known to local authorities and who are of working age are in paid employment. Many studies have shown there are significant benefits for business that employ people with a learning disability, including boosting staff morale, improving the public image of your company and financial costs.

Please visit the Mencap page which is focussing on employment for more information and downloads for prospective employers and people looking for work.
