Supported Pathway to Employment

Following the success of our Supported Pathway to Employment project in Woking, SILC is pleased to announce that we are now running another of these courses in Weybridge! 'Providing a supported pathway to employment for people with a disability or long term health condition' tailored, supported programme for people who have had a long period of unemployment or have particular challenges or barriers with returning to work. Covering:

  • Opportunity to meet others in a similar situation
  • Confidence and self-esteem building
  • Managing your health condition/disability
  • Identifying transferable skills
  • Preparing for work skills
  • Career guidance
  • Individual employment pathway support

The SPE course is facilitated by SILC’s Community Employment Specialist, Dave Smith. Dave has run these courses previously using his own experiences of living and working with a disability.

This SPE programme will consist of 4 training days (including buffet lunch), 4 tailored 1:1 sessions and 4 group/employer presentation sessions during the first 12 weeks and a further 12 week ‘keep in touch’ period for additional individual support.

NHS Health Complaints Advocacy service

We are pleased to announce that from 1st April 2018 we will be providing the NHS Health Complaints Advocacy service in Surrey.
Most of us use the NHS at some point in our lives and many of us use these services regularly. Whilst the NHS works hard to make sure that people are satisfied with the services sometimes things do go wrong. The NHS complaints procedure is in place to make sure that issues are resolved at a local level.

We are able to provide free, confidential and independent support and assistance to people who live in Surrey and wish to make a complaint about an NHS service.

If you would like more information about this service, please contact us on 01483 310 500 or
