Further information and guidance
Supported employment services
SUSE members provide specialised employment help for people with disabilities and employers. These services are free, confidential and tailored to the needs of each individual and business.
From September 2018 we will be adding a new feature to this website – a searchable database of supported employment services – the first of its kind in Scotland. Employers can use this to find SUSE members in their local area. We will update this page with the link when the new feature is ready.
