Ability Slough

Ability Slough is a project providing support for people with disabilities and long term health conditions to gain and maintain paid employment. It is funded by Department of Work and Pensions.

They work with you to

  • understand what you like to do and
  • match your skills, experience and aspirations to job roles in the local area

They also work with employers to help get you into work as soon as possible. Once you get a job, they provide support to help you keep it at your place of work.

They can help you with some of the following:

  • good quality, time limited work experience to build skills
  • support writing CVs and completing application forms
  • supported internships, apprenticeships and traineeships
  • applying for jobs, support at interviews, pre-employment checks and travel training
  • in-work support for you and your employer including help with reasonable adjustments, workplace assessments and compulsory training
  • signposting to other support, such as benefits advice, relevant training or Access to Work funding.

Help for those already working

If you:

  • are already in work and have a disability or long term health condition and
  • are struggling to manage with the demands of your role or you feel your employer is not treating you fairly

they can provide you and your employer with support in your workplace.
