WorkFit is the Down’s Syndrome Association’s employment programme which brings together employers and job-seekers who have Down’s syndrome. It is a tailored service dedicated to training employers about the learning profile of people who have Down’s syndrome so that they can be supported in the workplace. We focus on finding the right employment opportunities for people who have Down’s syndrome and ensuring that they have the support they need to be successful in the workplace.

Supported employment is not an end destination but a stepping stone into a career pathway. Have a look at our YouTube Channel  which illustrates the range of job roles that our candidates are employed to do.

As well as developing new opportunities, we want to progress employees in their careers by supporting them to expand their experience and learn new skills through training and opportunities for professional development.
