Support if you employ someone with a disability

Disability support: Work Psychology Team

The Department for Communities' Work Psychology Team (WPT) offers specialist consultancy to individuals and/or employers seeking advice and guidance in areas relating to disability and wellbeing in the context of work.

The WPT works closely with individuals who have a disability or health condition and are seeking work or who are experiencing difficulties in work.

Pre-employment services include highlighting an individual’s skill set strengths and job style preferences, as well as support needs.

In-employment services can provide advice to both employers and individuals regarding reasonable adjustments and possible alternative employment options.
