ABOUT US

JEND (Jersey Employer's Network on Disability) was formed in 1998. We are celebrating our 15th Anniversary this year! This is at a time when similar employer networks in the UK are folding after 2-3 years. We are solely funded by subscriptions and sponsorship donations for specific projects.

We work very closely with many of the local support agencies and as such are involved in policy development as well as working parties. When the British Irish Council visited Jersey a few years ago to research the supported employment model in place at the time JEND were invited to present and contribute to the process.

In accordance with our constitution JEND operates through a committee, chosen by its members, and meet on a regular basis throughout the year.

The aim of JEND is to enable an increasing number of individuals with a disability to:

           Remain in Work                  Return to Work      Gain Employment

- working together with a growing number of employers, and in partnership with local support agencies.

When we talk about individuals with a disability, we include degenerative illness, serious illness as well as more traditionally recognised disabilities.

We are always seeking to increase our membership, which covers most business sectors; large corporates, small businesses, the States of Jersey and local charities. A full listing of current members can be viewed in the member section.
