We were delighted to be part of Wiltshire Council's first EmployAbility Fair on 7 November 2017. The event was designed to help promote job opportunities and routes to employment for people with a disability whether mental or physical. There was advice and support on finding employment, a free CV health check drop-in session as well as opportunities to meet service providers and local employers in an informal setting, such as Home Instead!
It was great to meet people with different needs and have an opportunity to discuss how roles such as being a CAREGiver can be easily flexed and adapted to meet the requirements of individuals. No matter what you think the barriers to employment are, this event had someone who was focused on sourcing and even funding the solutions. It was fantastic to be part of an event that just buzzed with a positive atmosphere!
