Employment numbers have been steadily improving in recent years but there are still plenty of vacancies out there and the Employment Service can help fill those roles.  With the recessions of the 1980s and 1990s, people were often written off and put onto inactive benefits that did little to help them get back into work when the economy improved.  The aim of ESA is to offer support and help to avoid this problem happening again.

That’s why ESA has return to work support, personalised support for disabled people or those with health conditions and other systems to help people see what they can do.  The Disablement Advisory Service also offers a range of services that include work placements, training, employment and retention in work services for those with disabilities.
