Campagin to create new job opportunities for young disabled people

I Can Make It, is a Disability Rights UK campaign that aims to create new job opportunities for young disabled people.

The campaign was created because of the need to increase employment opportunities for disabled young people.

The campaign will be led by young disabled people with support of Disability Rights U.K. Their aim is to influence existing spending in local government and large businesses.

If you would like to be part of the I Can Make It campaign, you can volunteer but you must,

• Have a disability or long term health condition and be aged 18 – 29.

• Live in or around Birmingham, Bristol, Brighton, Hull, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham, Norwich, Sheffield or Southampton.

• Be passionate.

• Be committed.

• Be willing to work with or alongside other disabled people.

• Be able to commit on average one day per week and be willing to attend meeting or training days. We will pay for your travel.

If the campaign is successful then more young disabled people will find jobs, and build successful, sustainable careers. Disability Rights UK will be evaluating the campaign so that they can share evidence to show that this approach works.

If you would like to get involve emailLeo Capella with your C.V. and a message saying why you want to volunteer for this project and what your access requirements are.
