Thanks to an “Awards for All” grant from The Big Lottery, The Brain Charity has been able to extend their Employment Advisory Service and our Employment Officer, John Perry, is now available 9-5pm Monday to Friday.
If you want to get into work, John can explore your options with you.
Do you think you need more training to improve your skill set?
Do you want to go to college and get new or better qualifications?
Do you need to look at a new career but are unsure what direction to take?
Would you like to volunteer?
Do you want to start your own business and become self-employed?
John Perry, above, can help you explore all of these options and many more.
John can work with you and your employer and advise on the Access to Work scheme which is a Government grant that helps disabled people retain and maintain employment. He will guide you both through the process to ensure successful outcomes for both parties and will continue to work with your employer to ensure they are adhering to their legal obligations.
John who is blind and also has a neurological condition has been both employed and self-employed for many years has himself benefited from the Access to Work scheme and has found it invaluable in providing computer hardware and software that enables him to do his job, as well as a PA to give him the assistance he needs.
If you can’t make it to The Brain Charity’s base on Norton Street in Liverpool, John now also offers free employment advice to people with neurological conditions online over Skype. To arrange an initial appointment or to ask for advice contact The Brain Charity on 0151 298 2999, email firstname.lastname@example.org or come along to one of the employment advice drop-ins from 1-4pm on Friday afternoons at The Brain Charity.
