Workable Ni Employee


Workable NI is a programme funded through the Department for Employment & Learning.  Through Workable NI Disability Action can provide flexible support to individuals and their employers in a wide variety of jobs. 

I am a person with a disability

Disability Action can support you whether you are;

  •          Looking for a job,
  •          About to start a new job or
  •          Having difficulties in your existing job.

You can get support through Workable if:

  •          You are 16 years of age or over
  •          You have a disability
  •          You need support in the workplace

What type of support can I get?

The support we provide will be geared towards you and your needs.  It will be different for each individual but can include:

  •          Help to find the right job
  •          Help to build your CV and complete application forms
  •          Support to talk about issues with your employer
  •          Training courses to improve your skills
  •          Support in your workplace
  •          Disability Awareness Training for your employer
  •          Support with travel arrangements to and from work
  •          Benefit advice & support
  •          Advice and Guidance for your employer about reasonable adjustments and the
    Disability Discrimination Act

Or anything else that we agree might help you in the workplace.


How long will the support last?

If you are not in work Disability Action can help you to job search for a period that will usually last for 3 months.

If you are in work a two year support plan will be put in place.  Your support will be reviewed every six months and if you need support for a longer or shorter time this can be agreed with your employment officer.
