Merton adults with a learning disability that wish to find paid work. For those living outside of London Borough of Merton we would signpost to local services provided by their own local authority.

The service runs within normal council office hours, Monday to Friday, though occasional out of office hours support to interviews and workplace visits etc. may be arranged as required. The service is year round and available through school holidays etc.

If already known to Merton Adult Services then a direct referral to our team is fine.  However, if the individual has not previously been assessed for services then this would need to be carried out before we can work with the individual.
