Student with CP

HanHan Member Posts: 16 Courageous
Evening All,

I am a 19 year old student studying film at the university of Gloucestershire. I also have mild CP! I am now home for the summer and looking for a job. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of job search sites for disabled people or agencies which were especially good with disabled clients.

Cheers, Hannah

    Hi Hannah
    Maybe if you go to your local job centre to see what is around or have a chat with someone there so they can put you on the right line. Ive never spoken to them myself but Ive heard they are very good at trying to help disabled people trying to find suitable work whether it be part time or full time.

    Good luck

    Hiya Han. If your still not having much luck i would suggest "making your own job" by starting your own small time business i.e selling things on ebay or web based business. thats what i do and i love it. It all depends on what you want to gain from employment experience, money or to keep your self busy. hope this helps

    Try working with children, play schemes are great, its what I have done last few summers. They are normally very inclusive, participially the work I work for Bath Area Play Project.

    As the play schemes are actively inclusive towards young people, they are normally very good at be actively inclusive towards disabled employees,
