Progress into Employment Project

Everyone wants a meaningful and purposeful job and at Heart of England Mencap we believe that people with a learning disability should have that opportunity too. We are now supporting those furthest from the labour market, moving them towards and into employment in Warwickshire.


Thanks to funding from The National Lottery, through the Big Lottery Fund and European Social Fund, we are now able to work with other partners, to improve opportunities for people with learning disabilities in the Stratford-upon-Avon and Warwick districts.
