Helping disabled people into employment through a tailored support package for each individual provided by specialist Advisers
Work Choice is a Department for Work and Pensions contract, run as a subcontract by Prospects in Bournemouth on behalf of Shaw Trust, a national charity which works with employers, social services and the disabled to help people with disabilities find employment.
Each year, the support given by the programme helps thousands of people who face complex barriers to finding and sustaining employment, and encourages a clear and measurable step-by-step journey towards greater independence for people with all types of disability.
Flexible in design, the programme is individually tailored to help customers reach their full potential so they can move into independent, unsupported employment for a minimum of 16 hours each week. The Prospects team in Bournemouth has run Work Choice since October 2010.
