'Working Sense' employment project

Working Sense is a project that will enhance the employability of people over 25 with sensory loss or disability and who are economically inactive, by providing specialist support to enable them to enter and remain in employment, or move closer towards employment using a holistic one to one approach utilising designated project staff.

The project is running in Conwy, Denbighshire and Flintshire, and is run by Centre of Sign Sight Sound. Employment advisors and Well-Being officers will support the individuals with a range of interventions tailored to the needs and circumstances of the individual such as confidence building, vocational skills, practical help such as transport training as well as specific outcomes for those exiting programme which could be:

  • Supporting them into employment
  • Completing work experience placement or volunteering opportunities.
  • Gaining qualification or work relevant certification.
  • Engaging in Job Searches.
