1. Engage with local Cornish employers, getting them to think about the way they recruit, work with and develop young people living with a long-term health condition or disabilities.
2. Engage with young people living in Cornwall with a health condition or disability who are not engaged with support services to help them move into sustained and supported employment.
There are over 11,000 individuals living in the UK with a disability, yet by the time a young person with a disability is age 26, they are 4 times less likely to be in employment.
Workable is trying to change this, by highlighting the disparity in employment rates and acknowledging that just because someone has a disability, does not mean that they aren’t Work-able.
The campaign is led by a group of young people who are part of an EU and Big Lottery Funded programme called Game Changer – aimed at 15-24-year olds living in Cornwall who are not in education or employment.
Are you a young person interested in the Workable campaign? Please address your email to Jenny or Hannah.
Alternatively, if you are an employer interested in supporting young people, please address your email to Dave.
