Employment

Where can you get information on employment issues?

 

If you have a health condition or a disability that affects your ability to work, JobCentre Plus in Cornwall offers a service for disabled workers by putting them in touch with a Disability Employment Advisor (DEA). A Disability Employment Advisor will help you to find work or to gain new skills for a job. They can help with work preparation, advocacy, recruitment, and confidence building. Disability Employment Advisors offer an employment assessment to find out what kind of work would suit you best. For more information on Disability Employment Advisors see https://www.jobcentreguide.co.uk/jobcentre-plus-guide/34/disability-employment-advisors
