Our careers adviser can offer you extra support if you need it, such as finding out about and getting into careers and jobs, courses, apprenticeships or training. 

Advisers can also involve our team of specialist advisers who work with young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). Our specialist SEND team can tell you about support, funding and equipment for people with special needs and disabilities to make sure you use your skills and talents. These Remploy factsheets describe some of the conditions and disabilities that may require simple adjustments or additional support.

      • Aged 16 to 24? Make sure you check out your options locally
      • If there isn't the right education or training available locally, it may be possible in exceptional circumstances, to go to one of the National Specialist Colleges

There's lots of information on the Calderdale Local Offer and Kirklees Local Offer websites, which explains what you and your family can expect from a range of local services and national organisations that support people with special educational needs and disabilities.
