Join us at the Engage to Change launch event and celebration

We would like to invite you to join sponsoring AM Mark Isherwood and the Engage to Change team as we celebrate the launch of this exciting project!

The launch is set to take place on 30th March at the Pierhead, Cardiff Bay. The event will begin with registration from 10am, followed by a range of speakers and presentations beginning at 10:30. This will be followed by lunch and networking opportunities from 12:30-13:30.

This is an opportunity both to celebrate what the project has achieved so far in positively impacting the lives of young people with a learning disability and/or autism, and what we hope it will achieve in the future. We will hear from some of these young people as well as from representatives involved in delivering the project.

The five-year project is working with 800 employers across Wales to help 1000 young people with a learning disability and/or autism develop their employment skills through paid placements.

Engage to Change is delivered in partnership between Learning Disability Wales, Agoriad Cyf, All Wales People First, Cardiff University, ELITE and incorporating Project SEARCH. The project is being funded by the Big Lottery Fund in partnership with Welsh Government through the Getting Ahead 2 grant - the largest ever awarded by the Fund in Wales.
