EMPLOYMENT SUPPORT

At CHC, we aim to equip our customer with all the skills needed to gain and sustain a job.

Supporting someone to work isn’t about just finding them a job. It’s about matching the individual with the right employer and providing both with the support they need. This is particularly important if the customer has support needs due to disability or ill health.

 

This could be about practical solutions as well as about changing attitudes. Our experience has shown that usually only small practical changes are needed to make training accessible for the people we support.  Often, as employers say, once a person is given the opportunity to try out a job, their contribution speaks for itself.

To help support people with disabilities and other health condition CHC has partnered with Remploy by becoming an approved SRO (Statutory Referral Organisation) to Remploy Work Choice. A service that aims to find work for disabled individuals who face significant barriers in gaining and keeping employment.

Help to stay in work


CHC offers a service that is designed to support people who may be in danger of losing their job.  We enable people to work effectively by identifying their needs and providing support tailored to their individual requirements. All our customers are offered out of office hours support if required.

We remain totally independent whilst working closely with you and your employer, and can offer you the  support that you may require to stay in work.

We can help you with:

  • an individual development and support plan to maximise your potential
  • providing support advice and mediation  
  • access to learning, training and job coaching if necessary
  • Helping you to find the next job
  • discussing job re-structuring or redeployment with your employer

Ongoing support


Supporting someone to work isn’t about just finding them a job. It’s about matching the individual with the right employer and providing both with the support they need if they wish us to do so

We have found this very helpful for both employers and for the person who is working.

Some employers may be nervous about employing someone with a disability. They may be worried about how to deliver training. They may wonder if the person is up to the job, or be worried about what adjustments may have to be made.

 

We have found that the answers lie in working with an individual, rather than adopting a one-size-fits-all approach
