Help and ideas for people with learning disabilities

Steps To Work is a Supported Employment service within Adult Social Care and Health which forms part of East Sussex County Council’s Learning Disability, directly provided services.

Our main aim is to support people with Learning Disabilities into paid employment. We currently offer community-based projects, as well as routes into employment via work placements with local employers throughout East Sussex. Our team of dedicated Job Coaches are available to help and support people at each stage of their journey; we offer training, information and employment guidance to our job seekers and trainees on a 1:1 and group basis. We will reduce our support as people become confident in their role and develop the skills to demonstrate independent working.  We will always be just a phone call away if we’re needed.

Trainees are given the opportunity to expand their skills and knowledge by completing accredited qualifications, such as a Level 1 Employability Skills Award to enhance their CV.

Referrals into Steps To Work can be made by care management who identify peoples eligible need.
