Supported employment for young people with disabilities: Lessons from the NHS as an employer


24 Jan abstract-banner Part of Learning Disability Services Series

This webinar will be led by Ian Kessler, Professor of Public Policy & Management and Deputy Director of the Health & Social Care Workforce Research Unit (HSCWRU) at King’s College London.

This session reports on the findings from a project funded by Health Education England (HEE) on supported employment programmes, introduced by NHS Trusts, for young people with disabilities. Based on interviews with over 40 national, local and organisational actors with a stake in these programmes, attention will focus on why, how and with what effect such schemes are introduced. The session will provide insights into how to design and implement supported employment programmes for people with learning disabilities.
