The Action Station Supported Employment Advisors work with any adults that have a disability or specific barrier to paid employment, on a one-to-one keyworker basis. Our advisors are fully trained and have completed their Level 3 training Certificate for Supported Employment Practitioners.

These barriers could include: a physical disability, neuro-diversity, mental health, change of circumstances and long term/short term health conditions etc.

There will be no age barrier as we will work with clients aged from16 to 65 years old.

We can offer free key worker support for each client by:

  • Carrying out an Initial Assessment for each person to establish individual needs, goals and the type of support needed
  • Creating an individual plan, as part of a tailored package, that supports clients by removing barriers to paid employment. This includes planning volunteering and work experience opportunities where needed. This can also cover: signposting to life skills development, basic skills and courses ( including support for higher and further education), working on confidence and employability skills
  • Building a positive and trusting professional relationship both with client and their support network
  • Arranging meetings with clients in venues where they feel most comfortable and can access easily
  • Supporting with all aspects of job seeking such as: creating a CV, searching for jobs, applying for jobs, preparing for interviews, attending interviews and visiting employer premises.North Lincolnshire Council is also a member of BASE (British Association of Supported Employment) and we follow the BASE model for Supported Employment.
