Finding the right volunteering opportunities or paid work is not always easy and it can be even harder for people with a physical or learning disability.
In May and June, Hertfordshire Libraries in partnership with Adult Care Services are offering a series of employment and volunteering information events in libraries across Hertfordshire. These are especially targeted at young people who need extra support due to autism, or a physical or learning disability, but of course everyone is welcome.
AtConnected2Worklibrary events, visitors will learn more about:
- how to find and apply for jobs and volunteer roles
- where you can get extra help if you have a disability or autism
- money and benefits advice
Advisors from Job Centres, the Volunteer Bureau, HAFLS Skills for Work and Work Solutions will be at the event on hand to speak to visitors who would like to find out more. There will also be demonstrations of the new Connected2Work webpage and much more.
Some events include FREE Getting a job – skills workshops delivered by Work Solutions on:
- how to boost your confidence
