SUSE brings organisations together …. we are the national representative body for supported employment providers and anyone interested in ensuring that disabled people across our country have the opportunity of a working life. SUSE is where we come together to campaign, network, improve how we work and share our experiences.

SUSE champions supported employment …. we aim to ensure that supported employment is always part of the conversation when new strategies are developed and the needs of the people we support are central to plans of decision makers. SUSE played a leading role in the development of the Fair Start Scotland programme and is supporting its implementation. We can promote our members’ individual campaigns and we work with partners to campaign on the issues our members care about.

SUSE markets and promotes supported employment …. we highlight the achievements of our members and the impact of supported employment in our communities by moving people who are disadvantaged into meaningful employment. This includes annual events like DuoDay and our national conference and regular activity on social media as well as a Monthly Bulletin.  Our website allows members to promote their services, advertise jobs and market training opportunities and events.

SUSE is here to help …. we support our members on a daily basis and are always available to offer advice on a free and impartial basis.  If we can’t help we will help you find the people who can. As part of our plans going forward we will be offering training programmes with a supported employment focus, consultancy and regular capacity building events.  The cost of these are discounted for Full Members.
