Journey to Employment - J2E - successful partnership working!

The film above speaks for itself! 

The J2E prgramme delivered by Community Action and Disability Direct is a great example of partnership working. The programme, funded by the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) offers unemployed disabled people, in Derby city, support to help them move closer to employment.  The programme provides person-centred training courses and peer support and - as you can see from the film - is a great success! 

J2E adopts a holistic approach and ensures that disabled people and those with a health condition are supported to move closer to employment at a pace that is right for them.  Each person's individual barriers to employment, their specific health issues, their fears and concerns as well as their aspirations are taken into consideration to create an individual personal development plan.
