This free service is open to new participants - all areas of disability are covered by the SES consortium through specialist disability support organisations.

Workable (NI)  is a flexible programme which assists people with disabilities to return to work or remain in their current job of at least 10 hours/week or more.

Each of the SES partners provide their own tailored specialist support to best meet the needs of the individuals they assist in the workplace.  Support may include:

  • Specialist one to one support to the individual
  • Provide on the job and/or outside of work training
  • Provide specific training identified for the employee to assist them in their work above what the employer would normally offer
  • Provide specific disability awareness training to employer and work colleagues.
  • Offer advice and assistance with making reasonable adjustments in the workplace
  • A support package is agreed between the employee, employer and the SES provider for a period of 1 year, however this can be extended depending on the individual needs.
