Join us on 24 March to find out more about the research behind Engage to Change and what we believe needs to happen in Wales to enable more people with a learning disability or autism to find and keep paid work.

As part of the project’s aim to positively influence attitudes and policy on supported employment for people with a learning disability and/or autism, our research partners at Cardiff University have produced briefing papers on various topics and made several recommendations to policy makers.

On 24 March 2021, lead researcher Dr Steve Beyer will outline the content of his team’s two most recent briefing papers on the following topics:

Participants will have the opportunity to hear more about the research behind the briefing papers and how they can get involved in helping us to achieve the outcomes set out in Dr Beyer’s recommendations. There will also be an opportunity to ask questions and find out more about the work of the project.

This online event is aimed at:

  • policy makers (both local and national)
  • decision makers within the NHS and other public sector organisations
  • employers
  • commissioners
  • anyone with an interest in supported employment, job coaching and supported internships for people with a learning disability or autism.
