What is the Engage to Change project?

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.
Who is funding the Engage to Change project?

The project is funded by the National Lottery Community Fund in partnership with Welsh Government.

Learning Disability Wales is leading a consortium of organisations to deliver the Engage to Change project. This includes supported employment agencies ELITE and Agoriad Cyf, self-advocacy group All Wales People First, and the National Centre for Mental Health at Cardiff University. The project is also working in collaboration with supported internship programme DFN Project SEARCH.
