Employability providers, including supported employment providers, are increasingly working with clients who have a range of complex barriers to work, some of which maybe outside that agency’s expertise. For example, people who have disabilities or long-term health conditions which, in the past, haven’t been the core business of the supported agency in question. This means that employment support workers are required to have increasingly wide knowledge of many disabilities. As a collective body, SUSE has that knowledge. Click here to see how it proposes to work with members to disseminate that knowledge and expertise.
