'Only for the help I receive I would be unemployed.'

The above quote is from Workable NI participant Oisin who shows his appreciation to Declan McColgan his Employment and Training Officer.

Declan provides support to many disabled people in the workplace like Oisin, who works for a pharmaceutical supplier. Through the Workable NI programme Declan has put a range of supports in place for Oisin including two weekly support visits, working one-to-one to aid with communication skills and appropriate behaviour in the workplace, and agreed reasonable adjustments that include reduced hours and regular breaks. 

Oisin is a tangible asset to the company, plus his employer is reassured by the long-term support made available by the Workable NI programme.
