Event description

Description

Our speaker is Frances Austin from The Down's Syndrome Association. Frances is Employment Development Officer (North West) for DSA Workfit. DSA Workfit is a tailored service dedicated to training employers about the learning profile of people with Down’s syndrome and helping identify employment opportunities for people with Down's Syndrome. The session will include an introduction to DSA Workfit and the services they offer in supporting young people in volunteering, work experience and voluntary/paid employment. Frances will tell us about young people whom DSA Workfit has supported sucessfully into employment. This may be of interest to parents/professionals whose children are younger but who want to look to the future.

This is also a great opportunity to meet and chat to others supporting a young person with Down's Syndrome.

Parking is available on the road outside school. Please use the school main entrance. Tea/coffee and biscuits will be available on arrival.

We look forward to seeing you.
