  • Reasonable Accommodation Fund for the Employment of Disabled People
 
  • Workplace Equipment Adaptation Grant: This grant can be used to buy assistive technology to help you in your new role, or to get a work premises modified to provide better access in the workplace
 
  • Job Interview Interpreter Grant: This grant can be used to provide you with a sign language interpreter for interview

  • Employee Retention Grant: This is for employees who have become disabled to help them return to work
     

 

Will I get a job?


 

While we make every effort to help you find suitable employment, we cannot guarantee that this will happen. Finding employment depends on various factors such as:

  • The availability of suitable jobs in your locality relevant to your skills and abilities
  • You being actively involved in the four stages
  • The needs of employers
  • The hours of work you are willing to do
  • The type of employment you are willing to consider
  • Your willingness to engage in work experience
  • Your ability to get to and from work – transport implications
 

We may at any stage exit you from the EmployAbility Midlands Service if we feel that it is not the correct service for you. However, we will not do this without discussing this with you first. If we feel that another service is more suitable, we may (with your consent) refer you to it, for example a training service.
