New Employment Support Service

Scottish Borders Council has launched a new service for people who require additional help to find and sustain paid work.

The Employment Support Service provides a range of services, all designed to help people into the workplace and move onto being able to work independently.

Support is available for looked after and accommodated young people leaving care (16+), disengaged/disadvantaged young people and people with a learning disability, physical disability or sensory impairment, as well as those who are recovering from a mental health condition or on the autistic spectrum.

Anyone who is homeless or under threat of being homeless can also use the service.
