We Can Work is Inclusion Scotland’s project which aims to make work more accessible for disabled people. Many disabled people want to work but the inflexibility of the workplace and difficulty accessing support can be a barrier to finding suitable employment. By creating internships, we hope to give disabled people a career boost in the area they want to work in. Most of our current work in this area is funded by Scottish Government and forms an important element of their Disability Delivery Plan, which seeks among other things to halve the disability employment gap.
All too often disabled people find themselves unemployed, or underemployed. Underemployed means that someone is in work which does not suit their skills, education or desired working pattern. Inclusion Scotland delivers an internship programme to help address this imbalance and teach employers the value of making work more accessible.
