National Supported Internship Day 27th March

March 27, 2024

Today is National Supported Internship Day and is the first national celebration of supported internships in the UK. Launched in 2023 by charity DFN Project SEARCH, it is held annually on 27th March.

There are lots of events taking place to celebrate the day. Have a look at the DFN Project SEARCH website here to get involved and help transform the lives of young people with a learning disability or autism spectrum condition by raising awareness of supported internships on National Supported Internship Day.

WE Work is pleased to be involved with a new Supported Internship in partnership with Sixteen Coop. If you are a young person between 18 and 24 and do not have an EHCP you might be interested in joining this supported internship. Find out more Project Pilot A4 Easy
