Employment

The 2014 Care Act is clear about the requirement for commissioners to support disabled people to gain and retain work.  At NDTi, we are committed to the right of all people to engage in and benefit from real, paid employment. Employment offers financial rewards, the chance to use existing skills and develop new ones, self-respect and opportunities to contribute to and be valued by the community.

Employment

This applies to:

  • People with learning disabilities
  • People with mental health problems
  • Older people
  • Young people in transition to adulthood

We recognise that because of perceptions about ability, health, stage of life, support needs, confidence or history some people need highly skilled support to attain, maintain and fully engage in employment.

Employment may be working for an employer or being self employed but all cases it means being paid the proper rate for the job and benefiting from the same rights, opportunities and responsibilities as other workers.

We are able to offer a range of employment focused consultancy, service development and training supports.

Our work draws together a range of established and new tools and techniques that deliver effective strategies & investment plans, training programmes and individual supports. 

Our work includes:

  • Research into Employment support for disabled people
  • Research into the use of Personal Budgets for employment support

  • Employment is Everyone’s Business - improving employment outcomes for young people

  • Employment commissioning tool

  • Local employment commissioning, provision and outcomes – an independent audit focusing on outcomes and value for money
