Muscular Dystrophy UK's 'Moving Up' Employability Project
29 August 2017
Are you a young disabled person living in London and looking for employment support or an organisation looking to broaden your employment opportunities?
In their investigation into young disabled people’s access to employment, Trailblazers (Muscular Dystrophy UK’s young disabled campaigners network) found that over half of their ‘Right to Work’ survey participants had experienced barriers when looking for work experience.
In response, Trailblazers developed the 'Moving Up' project. Muscular Dystrophy UK offer placements, events and careers resources to young disabled people, as well as working with project partners, to improve employment opportunities.
