Firstly, the programme matches each individual with a suitable work placement. The object is to raise the employability of disabled people by helping them develop their skills, qualifications and experience. Our success rate has been excellent with a positive outcome rate of over 80%.

Open door was designed specifically to meet the needs of disabled people who wanted to enter employment, education or volunteering. Over the years this successful programme has also helped to raise the awareness of employers, enabling them to better meet the needs of their disabled customers.
