Employer 101 - How Supported Employment Works
"The level of support definitely varies per employee, what I have found is that as time goes by there is less support needed, they're more independent, they're doing the jobs that they're paid to do the same as any other member of staff.
What I'd say to other employers is, don't be scared, don't be sceptical, this is a system that works, the support is there 24/7 if required and you’ll have no issues. We've had very reliable staff here, the support is very reliable, there are no issue with other members of staff, the job you ask to be done will be done, don't be afraid."
