Supported Employment Project: Steven's Story

Ellesmere Port
Plus Dane doesn’t only provide homes and support in Ellesmere Port and Neston – it is also an employer.

Steven, who is visually impaired, joined the team on a three-month placement through the Supported Employment project, working in partnership with Cheshire West and Chester Council.

He was provided with a large monitor and keyboard, and initially started covering administration support for the Landlord Services Team. Following that, he was successful in securing a permanent role with Plus Dane.

Steven is currently working towards an NVQ Level 2 in Business Administration, with Plus Dane’s support.

Steven said: “Working at Plus Dane has given me an opportunity to further my work experience and qualifications. I was very proud to be awarded with a Plus Dane Inspirational Young Person Award in 2014, in recognition for my achievements”.
