Each year Papworth Trust helps over 13,000 disabled people in the East of England and the UK through a wide range of services covering Employment, Vocational Rehabilitation, Housing and Personal support. They are passionate about disabled people and the services we offer.

In using the term "disabled" we mean anyone who has a long-term health issue, learning difficulty, physical disability, sensory impairment, mental health issue or a combination of these or other impairments. They also mean anyone of any age.

As disability experts, Papworth Trust also works with the Government, employers, service providers and commissioners to promote disability equality and good practice.

Employment Programmes
They are an approved provider for a number of mainstream employment programmes including WORKSTEP and Pathways to Work. Helping people to move into and keep a permanent job.

The programmes are tailored on a one-to-one basis to suit most individual's circumstances. With their extensive local knowledge, clients on job search programmes achieve exceptional results, finding not just any old job, but one that really suits them. The process is free and won't affect your benefits until you start work.

Pathways to Work has been developed by the Government in order to help people claiming incapacity benefits back into the labour market. Since being introduced in October 2003, the programme has already helped almost 70,000 incapacity benefit claimants nationwide into employment by combining health and training support. Working from offices in Bury St Edmunds, Cambridge and Huntingdon, Papworth Trust offer the following services to people across the district claiming incapacity benefits:

• a Personal Adviser providing support every step of the way;
• specialist help to deal with any health problems that may be a barrier to employment;
• help with training such as basic skills or job-specific training;
• access to hundreds of jobs;
• advice and help on becoming self-employed; and
• support for six months after starting work to make sure that everything is going well.

People on incapacity benefits interested in getting more information about the Pathways to Work programme can telephone:
