I'll be eligible for something called "Workstep" at the end of this month, just had an e-mail back from the disability adviser who arranges this. It is an employment programme provides support to disabled people facing complex barriers to getting and keeping a job. It also offers practical assistance to employers. Hopefully it may help sway someone into taking me on. That's now 17 letters in the two months since I had that temp position.

National Autistic Society "I Exist"

I signed up for this on the NAS website and very soon after got an e-mail, to be forwarded to my local MP and social services. The e-mail contained a standard but editable template, I inserted text into this to say things needed to be put in place for those with AS most able to work overall, but being routinely denied work when "good communication", "confidence" etc is spewed over so many job specs.

Article from Personnel Today, "Awareness Campaign call for compact with employers"

Yet another article I've found, see it was dated approx a year ago, a press release sent to Personnel Today. It is calling for a national scheme, a year on this is still so badly needed with the NAS's Prospects only available in a select few areas.
