Peer Support for Work Facebook Group

29 November, 2016

We are delighted to announce that our local MP Tommy Sheppard is helping us launch our brand new 'Peer Support for Work' Facebook Group to coincide with the 'United Nations International Day of People with Disabilities'. Celebrated every year, the 'United Nations International Day of People with Disabilities' attracts an international audience.  A wide range of events are held across the world to mark the occasion.  Each year has a different theme and the focus in 2016 is 'Achieving Goals for the Future We Want'

"A peer support network for those with a disability seeking work would be a welcome addition to the current supports available.  By being able to access this online as well as face to face will enable those with a range of needs to benefit in a way that most suits them.  Being able to share concerns and positive experiences about their journey into employment could prove invaluable" 

Tommy Sheppard, MP
