Autism Anglia is looking for businesses in the local area (Colchester and surrounding) to support a brand new initiative that will help autistic adults to prepare for work.

In conjunction with the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP), Extra Support for Families, the Independence Project and Christians Against Poverty, Autism Anglia is excited to announce a brand new ‘Ready for Employment’ project.

The charity will provide a number of courses over the next year that will help local adults with autism to build confidence, write CVs and prepare for interviews.

As part of this project, Autism Anglia is calling on local businesses to help by providing participants an introduction to the industries and roles they are interested in.

If you can spare 2 hours, once a month at most which could be either virtually or face to face to talk about your industry and employment; Autism Anglia would love to hear from you.

Autism Anglia will support you through this project including advising on any reasonable adjustments that could be made to support current or future employees with autism.
