Work Choice is a government-funded programme that aims to assist individuals with disabilities and long-term health problems to:
- Find and maintain long term employment
- Retain employment with a current employer when at serious risk of losing their job
Work Choice’s aim is to match the disabled person to a suitable job and provide a flexible support programme that meets the need of both employee and employer. Work Choice enables individuals to work within a commercial environment, providing the possibility to progress into open employment where appropriate.CLARITY and Work Choice
Under the Work Choice programme, CLARITY has developed an Intermediate Labour Market (ILM) model of employment. We offer in-house, short term employment contracts together with embedded support to give disabled people the opportunity to gain impactful employment and skills, preparing them for the next step into mainstream employment (supported or unsupported).
CLARITY also supports those furthest from mainstream employment, who require a higher degree of intervention. We can provide longer term, sustainable employment for those unable to make the step into mainstream employment within a short period of time. This offers an opportunity for employment regardless of the complexity of a person’s barriers.
