Creating links between persons with disabilities and employers

In order to create meaningful opportunities for both employers and people with disabilities, there is often a need for organizations of some sort to link both sides with each other. There are a number of institutions that can support links between disabled people and employers and create more opportunities for disabled people to get into work.

Employment placement services can support both employers and people with disabilities and include providing information on job vacancies, assessing the professional aspirations and skills of job-seekers, matching job-seekers to available jobs or referring them for further training, if needed. While public employment agencies have a key role to play, they might lack the capacity to provide the full range of these services. Not-for-profit organisations which are ideally linked to the work of public employment agencies can fill gaps in the provision of employment services.
