We have various supported employment services in Cornwall which help disabled people in the area find work.

Cornwall Supported Employment specialises in offering support to people with learning disabilities and difficulties, including Asperger's and autism, to find and keep a job, and to develop their skills and confidence through work-related activities including volunteering and work experience as well as paid employment.

We also support employers on an ongoing basis to give any placement the best possible chance of working and to support employers to diversify their workforce in Cornwall. One of the ways in which we do this is by providing effective support and training that encourages employers to offer work-related opportunities for individuals with learning disabilities, Asperger's & autism (LDD).
