Westminster Employment supports adults with a learning disability and physical disabilities to find either paid employment, voluntary employment or work experience placements in a personcentred way. People are supported to produce an accessible action plan to confirm their hopes and aspirations for employment.

Westminster Employment provides job coaching for 13 weeks for people who need support gaining the skills and expertise required to meet their job roles and responsibilities. Additional support is provided after job coaching has ended to ensure people are able to maintain employment. Westminster Employment creates bespoke employment opportunities by working directly with individual employers.

Westminster Employment works in partnership with a number of employers who have employed clients and these employers represent the service by undertaking the role of Employer Ambassadors and inform other companies about the success of the partnership.
