Support for disabled and dyslexic people in the workplace

Clear Links can check availability of support workers matching your requirements in a matter of seconds

Clear Links has provided non-medical help support around the UK since 2006. This support can be funded by the Access to Work programme or by an employer. If you are disabled or dyslexic and in full time employment you may be eligible for a support worker or Job Coach.

What support is available?

Our Job Coach role encompasses:

  • Developing in the role: Our Job Coach will help clients identify skills and knowledge required to do the job. They can also suggest strategies for performing tasks efficiently and effectively.
  • Progressing in the role: Our Job Coach will evaluate an employee's progress, support and encourage them to become as independent as possible.

Other support may include roles such as:

  • Sighted Guide
  • Practical Assistant

How can I get this support?

You should work with your employer to determine the best steps to take. Should you be unsure as to which support is most appropriate for your circumstances, please contact us or your Job Centre Plus adviser who will be able to assist you.
