1196 Employment Programmes In Partnership with Specialist Autism Services

Ref:  1196
Age: 18+
Company: Specialist Autism Services
Location: Bradford and Leeds
Hours: TBC
Pay: No Pay

This 12-month project, funded by the Natwest Skills & Opportunities

Fund, will focus on supporting adults (aged 18+) with autism across Leeds

and Bradford to explore the possibility of pursuing self-employment.

We will be working with Business Services Leeds to help autistic adults to learn more about what it

means to be self-employed. You will be supported in group workshops and in 1-1 sessions to decide

whether self employment might be right for you, and if it is, to start planning how you can achieve


By looking at the things you are good at you can be supported to explore whether these activities

could be used to help others. You will work with sta to create a business plan and to start developing

goods/services for which others would be happy to pay.

This programme will start with a non-pressured half day group workshop and will continue with

weekly full day group workshops and monthly 1-1 coaching sessions. In these you will have the

opportunity to work with our sta members on developing your employment skills. Our sta members

will facilitate workshops around the topics that the group raise and will provide you with the

opportunity to develop things like social skills, con-dence, managing -nances and IT skills.

Our Employed by Me programme will be running across the year in Bradford on a

Tuesday, and Leeds on a Friday, all day (10.15 - 3.00).
