Supported Employment Service have been making inclusion in employment an everyday reality since they were established in 2017#NationalInclusionWeek2020

We support local employers who want to build inclusive workplaces; places where all employees are valued and can contribute towards the success and prosperity of the organisation, inclusive workplaces that are representative of our communities.

  • We offer practical interventions rather than conceptual ideas
  • We provide free expert support and advice on inclusion and diversity in the workforce.
  • We provide a free personal service tailored to both the employer and employee's needs
  • We can help to review your organisation's inclusion practice
  • We can keep you up to date with the latest inclusion news

We look to partner with local employers who want to use inclusion to drive commercial or organisational success.

We see a future where every workplace is an inclusive employer and one where every employee values differences and can contribute their skills and ideas fully to their organisation#NationalInclusionWeek2020

Together with our local partners we are driving the inclusion momentum if you want to join us please email supportedemployment@westlothian.gov.uk or call 07917 814 440

'Having someone with autism working as part of our team is an absolute blessing. It has not only pulled our team together to work more efficiently, but also improved the output. For me as a manager I'm finding it so rewarding working closely with him, we've overcome challenges and he's blossoming as an employee and making friends.The one main thing noted from the very start is how easy it's been to train him he's very bright and learns quickly.'
