The importance of inclusive recruitment practices

A learning disability charity has launched a new national alumni network as part of plans to get 10,000 young autistic people and people with a learning disability into work by 2030. The network has been launched by DFN Project SEARCH, a charity which runs a one-year transition to work programme for young autistic adults and young adults with a learning disability. It will be led by the charity’s Youth Advisory Group, which comprises of young people who are currently undertaking a sponsored internship and those who have completed such internships in recent years. These supported internships are open to 16-24-year-olds
