Welcome to Engage to Change

The Engage to Change project is working across Wales to support young people aged 16-25 who have a learning difficulty, learning disability and/or autism to achieve their full potential.

Using a person-centred approach, Engage to Change works closely with young people, their parents/carers and employers to:

  • overcome barriers to employment
  • develop transferable skills
  • offer unpaid work experience
  • provide paid supported employment
  • find volunteering opportunities
  • offer access to supported internships.

We are continuing to support young people throughout the pandemic and we are still accepting referrals to the project so please contact us if you are a young person interested in joining the project or the parent/carer of a young person who is interested in joining.

To make a referral for a young person living in North Wales, north Ceredigion or north Powys please contact Agoriad Cyf by email e2c@agoriad.org.uk or phone 01248 361392.

To refer a young person living in South Wales, south Ceredigion or south Powys please contact Elite Supported Employment by email tmoore@elitesea.co.uk or phone 07943 866 246.

This project is made possible through funding from the National Lottery Community Fund in partnership with Welsh Government.
