committed to helping people with learning disabilities and autism into employment
At Toucan Employment we are committed to helping people with learning difficulties/disabilities and autism into employment and supporting employers so they can successfully recruit and embrace the inclusion of disability into their workplace.
Government statistics reveal there are 393,000 unemployed disabled people seeking employment in the UK. Although 50% of people with a learning disability want to or able to work, just 6% are actually employed*.
