Milton Keynes Council: Supported Employment

Milton Keynes Council: Supported Employment MK

We support people to identify and apply for jobs, support at interviews, and provide job coaching in the work place. We also support people with issues with benefits regarding their employment. We help people move closer to becoming employable, and help those who are already employable to find a job. We will help them to stay in their current job or employment area.

What We Do 

 At Supported Employment MK our key priorities are: 

  • To ensure more people with a learning disability have the opportunity to work 
  • To promote the benefits of supported employment with local employers 
  • To support  Milton Keynes Council to employ more people with a learning disability 
  • To ensure people with a learning disability are given the support necessary to find sustainable and meaningful employment 

We support people to identify and apply for suitable jobs. Provide support at interview and job coaching in the workplace. We also support people with issues with benefits regarding their employment. The supported employment programme can help people move closer to becoming employed and help those who are already employable to find jobs or stay in their current job.
