HOW WE DO IT

In order to raise awareness and promote "ability not disability" we hold a series of breakfast seminars throughout the year. The seminars are designed to be informative, interactive and thought provoking. Where appropriate we arrange for specialist guest speakers to present at our seminars.

On an annual basis we aim to raise awareness across a broad range of topics, typically including mental as well as physical disability, while promoting the support available locally through other organisations, agencies and employers. Our membership provides ongoing feedback and plays an active part on both the focus and content of seminars as well as JEND’s continuing strategy.

Jersey has been recognised as a model of supported employment success, both in the UK and, more recently, in Europe - despite the fact that there is no discrimination legislation currently in place in Jersey.

We seek to provide support for employers by assisting then with specific issues which they may have and, as necessary, utilising our extended network of support agencies and charities.

We are available to make in-house presentations to employers to raise awareness, promote best practice and therefore work towards a fully inclusive workplace.
