Getting A Job – Advice for family carers of adults with a learning disability

The National Valuing Families Forum (NVFF) and the Foundation for People with Learning Disabilities (FPLD) commissioned a family member, Dave Barker, to write a guide for families on employment. The project arose from the Valuing Employment Now programme with the aim of developing a resource by and for families. The government set up Valuing Employment Now as part of the Valuing People initiative in 2009 to increase the employment rates for people with a learning disability. A campaign was run in 2010 to raise awareness and the aspirations of families, self-advocates and people from hard to reach communities around employment. Click HERE for the guide.
