What we do…..

With an average 50% of working aged adults with a disability not in work we believe many workplaces are missing out on a great source of talented and committed employees. We know from personal experience that it doesn’t have to be like that.

Workability in Waveney, will offer 1:1 sessions focusing on Wellbeing for Work.     We will create individual bespoke programmes to enable each client to identify and overcome barriers to employment.

It is our mission to support our clients to achieve paid work, long term volunteering or further training within Waveney.
