Job support if you have a disability or mental health condition (DurhamEnable)


If you are aged 18 years or over, DurhamEnable can support you to find a job.

European Union - European Social Fund logoWe have a team of job coaches across County Durham to support you in work and beyond to ensure you are confident and settled in your workplace.

Who we can support

We can support you if you continue to face significant barriers to entering work as a result of:

  • the long term nature of a disability
  • the potential long term impact of deteriorating mental health

This may be because of a long term diagnosis of a learning disability/difficulty, Autism or a physical or sensory impairment. Additionally, if you have difficulties with mental ill health you can benefit from one to one support to gain work and a progress to better health.

We can give you personalised support to help you to develop the skills and confidence needed to apply for jobs and get into work. We can also support you in work when you get a job.

How to get referred

You will need to be referred to our service by one of our council services (such as our social work team and our community health and education teams), JobCentrePlus or Durham County Carers Support.

To find out more information about your referral and the support we can offer you please contact us at durhamenable@durham.gov.uk
