We’re raising funds to support NMC’s Training, Employability, and Young People programmes, which will enable people to develop their confidence and employability skillset, and to further support our young people in their goals, aspirations, and plans for the future.
Many with neuromuscular conditions have had to give up their jobs, having found they are unable to continue working in their fields, often as their condition progresses, or they haven’t had the support to keep them in work, or they’re looking for a more suitable career. Young people face difficulties in accessing education, with entering the workforce, and with a lack of accessible routes to further develop their skills and abilities, meaning they struggle against barriers and challenges.
Raising funds to support our services in Training, Employability and for Young People will enable us to extend and develop our offerings, all working towards supporting our extended community set and achieve new goals and develop further skills. This will in turn enable people to successfully stay in employment for longer, by giving them the skills they need to continue in their careers, to access support from their employers, or for entering the workforce for the first time.
