Nikki Our Engagement Officer had previously worked as a vocational support worker, supporting individuals with varying and complex disabilities to find work and volunteer placements within Liverpool. Even with a number of successful placements, it was apparent that changes still needed to be made in how disabled people are supported to find employment.
Nikki works with participant’s families, friends or carers to ensure that people we help have a strong and empowered support network around them. Nikki also works on networking and implementing Disability Champions to an number of businesses and organisations around Liverpool.
Nikki also attends key community meetings and working with our partner agencies including the DWP, Schools, Colleges and Businesses she has become the link in ensuring that our beneficiaries, parents and carers voices are heard.
