Practical steps and an overview of available tools designed to encourage employment for people with learning disabilities in NHS organisations. The aim of these tools and guidance is to raise awareness, highlight good practice and break down some of the barriers that both employers and potential employees may face, helping create a culture which welcomes people with learning disabilities. This guidance is structured around five building blocks, taking potential employers and managers through the process of recruiting and employing someone with a learning disability. The building blocks are: getting started; being an accessible employer; identifying real jobs; advertising and recruitment; and employment. (Edited publisher abstract)
