ELITE Supported Employment is a registered charity empowering disabled people or those at a disadvantage across South, Mid and West Wales. ELITE supports hundreds of people every year with vocational opportunities, training and employment through to independence. We believe that anyone can work, irrespective of their disability, given the right training and support.
We provide support to a wide range of participants across South, East and West Wales through our various projects, including Supported Internships, Supported Shared Apprenticeships and Restart. ELITE also has three Social Enterprises, ELITE Paper Solutions, ELITE Clothing Solutions and ELITE Training Solutions.
ELITE Supported Employment is a third-sector employability organisation that empowers its participants to support our participants to develop work related skills. Using structured training techniques and supported social encouragement, we aim to enable people into a job that they can carry out independently.
Through the work conducted at ELITE and our Social Enteprises, we provide a range of programmes and vocational experiences for disabled and disadvantaged people, not only to raise skill levels, but also levels of confidence, self esteem and independence, as the first part of their journey to training, volunteering and employment.
