Works for Me employment programme

Works For Me is a free face-to-face service for blind and partially sighted people living in a London borough who are seeking paid employment, want to retain work through sight loss or are navigating a career change.

We can support blind and partially sighted people to develop skills and offer advice to transition to the workplace, navigate the job market or further their careers.

Support available

The support offered is tailored to each individual’s needs and can include:

  • One-to-one support either face-to-face, over the phone, by post or email with a member of our Employment team
  • Drop-in sessions
  • Peer-led events such as networking and workshops delivered by blind and partially sighted people who can share their lived experiences in employment
  • Signposting to other specialist services such as counselling, rehabilitation, education or business start up

Works For Me tech sessions

Works For Me runs a series of tech sessions for blind and partially sighted people to develop IT skills, try out assistive technology and provide tips on writing covering letters, emails and application forms.
