Switch Now is a community interest company. We differ from a charity as we are a business that reinvests its profits to benefit the people and the community we work with - our community of interest. Switch Now aims to introduce, recognise, develop, progress and enable young adults with learning difficulties and / or disabilities to be able to reach their maximum potential; offering them a fulfilled future into paid employment, supported employment or voluntary work.
Switch Now provides young adults (18-30 years of age) with learning difficulties / disabilities supported training to develop employment skills, with the objective to be ‘work ready’. We aim to work collaboratively with the local community and partner organisations to identify the opportunities for employment, aiming for inclusive places of work, with a mutual benefit to both employer and employee. The long-term business aim for this not-for-profit organisation is to reinvest profits to create a sustainable job coaching programme; to bolster the development of maintainable employment opportunities, as well as supporting involved employers in the community.
