ecdp Works breakfast event brings together Essex organisations
On 3 July 2013, ecdp held a breakfast event at ecdp HQ to bring together committed organisations from across the county to discuss their award winning employment programme, ecdp Works.
In partnership with Jobcentre Plus and MITIE, ecdp Works is designed to offer unemployed disabled individuals the opportunity to participate in meaningful work placements to give them the drive, experience and confidence needed to get into paid employment.
The placement lasts for six weeks and includes bespoke training, delivered flexibly at the right pace for each individual. To date, the results have been outstanding. Over 50% of participants have found fix term or full-time employment and numerous organisations have been involved in providing work placements from across the private, public and voluntary sectors in the past. Feedback from employers has been overwhelmingly positive.
The next ecdp Works programme will run at the end of September 2013.
If you missed the breakfast event, there is still opportunity to be involved in this exciting and innovative programme. Email Rachel today at email@example.com for more information.
Thursday 07 July 2016 is THE BIG HEALTH DAY from 10am to 3pm.
Disability Essex provided advice, support and a place to socialise for disabled people, their families and carers since 1949 but has closed due to financial difficulties.
