Youth Action Fund

Enable Works

ENABLE Works delivers services to people with additional support needs, and their families, around the UK. The organisation’s vision is that every person with a learning disability should have the choice and control to live independently in the community.

The Disability Employment Gap is a Government measure used to understand the difference between those who are disabled and working compared to the non-disabled working population. At 32.8%, Scotland has the highest Disability Employment Gap in the UK. If a young disabled person leaves school with no positive destination, they are four times more likely to be unemployed at 25. ENABLE Works provides employment and skills to help people with disabilities, or other barriers to employment, access the world of work. The organisation also engages with employers to challenge perceptions and help foster more inclusive workplaces.

ENABLE Works’ Stepping Up employability programme is being delivered in schools across Scotland and the service footprint has been expanded with support from the Youth Action Fund to include assistance in North Lanarkshire, Moray and the Western Isles. The programme helps young people explore their aspirations, achieve work experience and secure a positive employability outcome when they leave school.

Enable Works is part of the Enable Group.
