Employers Forum

We are an innovative and forward thinking charity and recognised for working regionally with young people with additional needs around employability.
We also work nationally on a strategic basis advising policy makers and helping accelerate change across the country.

We partner with organisations like KPMG, Yorkshire Water, John Lewis Partnership, NHS Trust Johnson & Johnson, plus many more proactive organisations with a base in Yorkshire. They support our internship programmes helping to grow our network of employers and generally helping us better understand the barriers from an employer perspective. Our Hidden Talents Employers Forums are held regularly and we have grown in the past 12 months to have many organisations attending events.
Hosting of events is rotated around our members.
The Supportive Employers Group has a number of objectives:
• To educate, promote and increase Supported Internships across the region
• To knowledge share and provide a support network
• To ensure we gain the highest possible employment outcomes
• To look at internal organisational processes eg HR, reasonable adjustments to the workplace to ensure sustainability and success.
Benefits of joining our forum:
