United Response ‘Cornwall Supported Employment’ supports anyone aged 16+ who has a learning difficulty, learning disability, Asperger’s or Autism to take part in work related activities.

One to one ‘person centred’ mentoring is delivered by specialist job coaches and our intensive Information, advice and guidance supports people to start thinking about what paid employment really means to them.

We also provide support in those crucial first few months of being in work to ensure sustainability.  United Response have bases in Bodmin, Threemilestone and Tolvaddon.
