Supported Employment


Bootstrap’s Supported Employment service is commissioned by Blackburn with Darwen Council for adults in the Borough.
People with disabilities, health conditions or support needs get the help they need to secure the right job, and where necessary practical help to suggest adjustments to a role to fit the needs of the employer and the skills and abilities of the client. At Bootstrap Supported Employment clients can usually be described as being in one or more of the following categories:
• Learning disability and or Autism
• Physical Disability and or sensory impairment
• Secondary Mental Health- clients with enduring Mental Health conditions
• Primary Mental Health- clients experiencing a period of mental illness, usually anxiety
The service is delivered by specialist advisors in each of the above areas.
Every client is allocated to one of the specialist advisors, who will provide support to the client until they are established in unsupported employment.
