White Paper Motion (in the name of Councillor Lay) - Supporting Residents with a Learning Disability into Employment pdf icon PDF 227 KB

Leeds has an ambition to be the best city for all its citizens and this includes those residents with a learning disability. This council also has a focus and commitment to support individuals with a learning disability to live independent, active and fulfilling lives. 

 

This Council therefore commits to further enhance the lives of those with a learning disability by:

 

·  committing to provide a stronger focus in assisting all those with a learning disability the  opportunity of work.

·  welcoming a deputation of residents with a learning disability to address Council on what more we can do to help them into employment.

·  asking the appropriate Scrutiny Board(s) to explore how we can create meaningful jobs across the city for those that want one: 

o  by creating meaningful employment/jobs within the Council.

o  by ensuring those jobs have the support mechanisms needed to help individuals with a learning disability to ‘get into’ and ‘stay in’ employment.

o  by setting a target figure for employment and work towards it.

o  by using its influence to encourage its partners in the public, private and the third sectors to do the same.

o  by supporting the Yorkshire Evening Post campaign ‘Let’s work together’.

 

And asks the Chief Officer for Employment and Skills to bring a report to the September 2019 Executive Board with recommendations of how the Council’s ambition can be achieved.
