DurhamEnable is now delivering Department for Work and Pensions Local Supported Employment initiative contract across County Durham. The support on the initiative will run until March 2025. The Local Supported Employment Initiative is a voluntary support programme for all County Durham residents who are 18+years old and for those with a learning disability and/or autism. As this is a Department for Work and Pensions programme, you must not be supported on any other DWP funded programme or accessing a Supported Internship.
If you would like to make a direct referral to the Local Supported Employment Initiative, please download our Local Supported Employment referral form and send to the DurhamEnable email address; DurhamEnable@durham.gov.uk
If you wish to enquire about any of the DurhamEnable services available, please contact us and we will be happy to find the right support for you.
