Today was the first day of the ecdp Works Course. As the masterminds behind the programme, Dennis Preston and Rachel Vipond opened with several introductions before the CEO of ECDP, Mike Adams, spoke about how beneficial the course could be. We were then asked to introduce ourselves to the person next to us, answering six questions about who we were. When we were done, we then introduced that person to the rest of the room. Rachel, Dennis, and the various course mentors around the room also took part in all the activities.

Calling all Essex businesses

Hosting an ecdp Works participant isn't just an exercise in corporate social responsibility.

It is a chance to really make a difference to your business.

Over the past few months, local Essex organisations have hosted ecdp Works participants. The impact has been astounding.

Companies have not only saved on recruitment costs, increased their productivity levels and raised awareness of disability within their work places, they have gained a deeper insight into the importance of being Disability Confident.

Jody's story

I met with Jody to talk about his work experience placement with Essex Police. Here is his story...

Jody has already secured an interview following completion of the ecdp Works programme.

Jody spent his placement with Essex Police, and specifically with the Evidential Media Unit. This involved dealing with evidence, and processing the multimedia side of this important work. This often meant taking pictures, and processing images from CCTV and other sources.
