Working with Sheffield City Region
Autism Plus is delighted to announce that our Specialist Training Services team will be working in Partnership with Sheffield City Region on a new project called Building Better Opportunities, starting in early 2017. Building Better Opportunities - Sheffield City Region (BBO SCR) is an integrated, person-centred employment service for people with physical and mental health conditions, learning disabilities and complex needs. It’s based on Individual Placement Support, a “place then train” approach that’s shown to be twice as effective as traditional approaches. The BBO SCR Partnership will support 642 adults over the next 2 years to find competitive employment and training opportunities. BBO SCR has received £2.7million of funding from the Big Lottery Fund and European Social Fund as part of the 2014-2020 European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme in England. We will be announcing further information on this project in the coming weeks so keep checking this page for further updates.
