Did you know that your autistic employees could access a range of support in the workplace through an Access to Work grant? This grant (of up to £57,200 per person) can be used to make alterations to the workplace but can also importantly fund mentoring and training for colleagues.
We are able to provide personalised training which is unique to your business, and can work with colleagues, supervisors and senior leaders to ensure that all of the business is aware and accepting of autism in the workplace.
Through delivering a before-during-after training service we can ensure that it is relevant to both your business and also the individuals we are supporting. This can be delivered flexibly and can benefit all employees through increasing their awareness and acceptance of autism, which may also allow them to better support your customers as well.
The 1-2-1 mentoring can also take place across an extended period allowing the employee to work with us and address a range of areas. As well as providing a member of staff to support induction, this extended mentoring can allow the employee to ask questions which they may feel otherwise uncomfortable asking.
Support for both the individual and the business can be provided during the application process, and if you have any further questions please contact us directly.
