General, Supporting our vulnerable adults

Work achievements of people with disabilities celebrated

Nearly 430 people with disabilities were helped to find work in the past year through a Surrey County Council initiative.

EmployAbility secured paid employment, voluntary work or a work experience role for 426 people in the last financial year. It also continued to help nearly 600 people in their jobs.

The news follows an awards ceremony celebrating their achievements and the employers who support them.

Christina Earl, Surrey County Council’s EmployAbility team manager, said: “I’m delighted so many people with disabilities have found work they clearly enjoy and such a large number of firms and organisations have given them a chance to shine.

“Supporting vulnerable people is at the heart of what the county council does and this is a fantastic example of how we’re investing in people’s futures.”
