Down’s Syndrome Awareness Week

ImageThis week is Down’s syndrome awareness week, the aim of the campaign is to make employers that people with Down’s syndrome want and need work opportunities.

In the UK there are currently 60,000 people with the condition, people with the syndrome are not ill, many will live fulfilling and semi-independent lives.

The Down’s syndrome Association have launched a Workfit website for potential employers as part of the week.

The website gives employers Advice and guidance on developing roles for people with Down’s syndrome and also lists Candidates who are ready to work or who are developing their skills for future work opportunities.

Wherever you are with your recruitment needs, workfit will support you throughout the process.

To take part in this opportunity and help support people with Down’s syndrome contact the employment Development officer dsworkfit@downs-syndrome.org.uk.
