Having a job not only earns you money, it also gives you confidence and independence. However, finding the right job or holding down a job can be particularly challenging if you have a disability, health problem or have been out of work for a while.
It can be hard to stay positive when you’re job hunting, particularly if nothing suitable is coming up, or you have been unsuccessful in previous applications.
Equally, if you have a job but are finding it hard to get there everyday or perform as well as you'd like because of anything related to a disability or health problem, you may need some extra support.
There are steps you can take to improve your chances of finding work and specialist people and organisations to support you. This could be through volunteering, work experience or careers advice and mentoring.
