The Employment Advocacy Service aims to help disabled people who are experiencing difficulties or discrimination in the workplace. Support is provided by peer advocates who are disabled people, who have undertaken advocacy training and who come from a variety of backgrounds.

The service aims to support disabled people to look at disability-related employment issues. It focuses on early action to maintain good relationships, to develop positive communication, and to enable people with disabilities to stay in employment. Support is also provided to employers to recruit and retain disabled employees.

Advice and guidance are provided on all relevant company policies to ensure best practice and positive actions around recruitment, selection, retention and promotion of disabled employees.
