Host a Work Placement through Building People, Changing Minds

Building People, Changing Minds aims to place adults with learning disabilities, mental ill-health and people seeking sanctuary into voluntary work placements with local employers.

Through Building People, Changing Minds Lewisham LocalLewisham Speaking Up and Lewisham Refugee and Migrant Network, aim to build a community of employers that understand the support needs and adjustments necessary to host a work placement volunteer.

To enable this, we will offer full support to you as a host employer to prepare you and your workplace in advance of taking on work placements, and will continue to offer support throughout each placement. This includes training and an access budget for reasonable adjustments.

Find out more here or please attend our Introduction to Work Placement Hosts event on 24 June 2022. Please choose your slot here by Wednesday June 15th at 5pm and we will be in contact with the chosen date and registration details.
