June 28 at 10:00 AM- 12:00 PM

It is our pleasure to invite you to our event taking place at Riverside House on the 28thJune. The event will run from 10am until 12pm.

Our aim is to increase the opportunities available to people with Learning Disabilities and/or Autism in Rotherham and surrounding areas.

We support these people by offering them Supported Internships and Supported Employment with local employers. Currently we have young people on Supported Internships with employers such Gullivers Valley, Mediquip and RMBC.

Our Supported Employment services has to date helped 36 people gain employment with companies such as Acorn, Places leisure, and Sheffield Wednesday.

The event will start with an overview of what Supported Internships and Employment is, how it works and what the support looks like. Employment is for Everyone will be conducting a short workshop to demonstrate some of this support and where you as an organisation can access free training and support.

We will then hear from employers about the benefits of taking part in Supported Internships / Employment, working with the Rotherham Employment Solutions team and how this helps your business and the wider Rotherham community as a whole.

Café space will remain open until 13:00 to allow for networking.
