The Foundation for People with Learning Disabilities have made a free booklet for family carers which you can download from this link: www.learningdisabilities.org.uk/publications/getting-a-job/.

Families sometimes do not know how to go about helping their family member with learning disabilities into paid work. This guide offers valuable information to help families think about what they can do to support their family member.
It includes sections on:
• aspirations
• myth-busting
• steps to employment & getting started
• self-employment
• working with professionals and taking the lead
• stopping work
• other sources of help.
