employment and volunteering
Most young people with special educational needs or disabilities will need some extra support to be ready for and to find employment.
Our handbook ‘Through the Next Maze 2016’ features a chapter on ‘Employment and volunteering’ that provides information about the various options available to young people in terms volunteering and employment in Brighton & Hove. It also explains how Disability Employment Advisers at Jobcentre Plus and the Supported Employment Team at your local council can help.
Much of the information in the chapter is also relevant to families in East Sussex, though the information about specific services will differ according to where you live. For information about supported employment in East Sussex, contact Careers East Sussex or visit the ESCIS directory information supported employment.
