Susie’s journey into employment

There are a range of local and national organisations able to support NHS organisations committed to employing people with learning disabilities. In the second in a series of blogs from the NHS Learning Disability Employment Programme, St. George’s Hospital showcases Susie’s employment journey as well as some of the support they accessed:

Susie took part in Project Search at St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in 2014-2015.

Project Search is an international supported internship programme for young people with disabilities, including learning disabilities. Each year, six trainees undertake work experience in various departments across the trust. They are supported by the Project Search team while on their placements and to find employment after their placements.
