Specialist Support

Specialist Support is available to anyone who lives in the Kirklees area who has been diagnosed with a mental health problem, autistic spectrum condition and/or with other hidden impairments, e.g. ADHD, dyslexia and dyspraxia, or early onset dementia through The Richmond Fellowship. 

Disclosing a disability:

Legislation prevents employers from discriminating against anyone because of a disability and obliges them to make “reasonable adjustments” to accommodate disability.


Have you heard about Change100? They offer summer internships with top companies from across the UK for university students and recent graduates with a long term health condition or disability, including physical, visual or hearing impairments, mental health conditions and learning disabilities like dyslexia and dyspraxia.
