What does your organisation do?
Employment Opportunities for People with Disabilities was founded in 1980 by ten major City of London employers. The Bristol & West office has been running since 1986 and covers the Bristol, Bath, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire areas. In the last five years we have successfully helped nearly 6000 people with disabilities into work.<br>We offer a completely free service to individuals in receipt of disability benefits, by way of the following programmes: WORKSTEP, Working Communities and Work Preparation Modules which include one to one personal development and a work placement with a real employer. Our Personal Advisers will help to identify employment barriers by exploring realistic job goals, building confidence, assessing current skills and recommending training where appropriate. We assist with job search, CV's application forms and interview techniques and continue to provide ongoing support to both the individual and employer once paid work has commenced. We also work with employers to retain existing workers whose job may be at risk because they have become ill or disabled.<br>Anyone wishing to know more about our services and programmes should telephone us on 0117 989 7066 or email
