ENABLE Works – Help for you
We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to explore their talents and ambitions in the workplace.
With the right support, everyone can gain the skills and confidence necessary to do this.
Every day, ENABLE Works supports who have a learning disability to develop their employment skills and find work. Our approach is to help you think about the skills you want to develop and the type of work you want to do.
Our development programmes are all about getting people ready for work – with support every step of the way.
Our team will get to know you, help you decide on the type of work you want to do, and support you to find the job that’s right for you.
ENABLE Works supports over 1,500 individuals with learning disabilities into the workplace every year.
Our aim is to work with you to set goals, build skills and help you find the job you want.
Working in the theatre was my dream for years! One of the best things about ENABLE Works was that they helped me find out what I wanted to do and help me build up skills in order to achieve this. I started last November as a Christmas temp, and I was so enthusiastic about the job they kept me on! I’ve worked there for almost a year now!
My Favourite part of working at the theatre so far has been the pantomime at Christmas. It was so busy, but I loved it anyway! We had a staff night out to celebrate the end of season, which was lots of fun!
During my six years at ENABLE Works, I have had a few different work experiences, from volunteering to working in retail. Throughout all of these, I have been supported to do what was right for me. ENABLE Works even helped me when I had problems in the workplace, helping me move departments to one more suitable for me!
My favourite part of ENABLE Works is the team! They have been so supportive and understanding with me over the years and helped me get my dream job in the end! I’m quite anxious at times, but it helped that that they are with you every step of the way. They supported me with building up my employability skills, CV’s, applications and interviews. I think Laura’s ears hurt I was screaming so much when I found out I got my job at the theatre!
My time with ENABLE Works is ending soon and I would like to say a massive thank you to the team. They have supported me for the last six years through thick and thin! They’ve always believed in me and pushed me to reach my full potential. I’ve gained so much confidence through ENABLE Works, both in myself and my abilities! I don’t think I would be at my dream job without them.
