Local Offer


Jobcentre Plus employs a Disability Employment Adviser (DEA) at each of its offices who can help you find a job or gain new skills and tell you about disability-friendly employers in your area.

They can also refer you to a specialist work psychologist, if appropriate, or carry out an employment assessment by referring you to a work coach at your local Jobcentre.

Jobcentre Plus is the entry point for a number of programmes and grants to help you into work such as Work Choice, Access to Work, or Specialist Employability Support. They can also refer you to other agencies who help disabled people into work such as the Shaw Trust and Princes Trust.
