Project SEARCH

Project SEARCH is a supported employment initiative for young people with learning difficulties and disabilities.

It started in the USA in 1996 and is now being taken forward in Europe and the UK. Within the UK, Project SEARCH is essentially a joint project between a local authority, a local college or school and a host employer. One of Project SEARCH’s most unique attributes is its emphasis on collaboration. Project SEARCH is driven by partnerships and a network of tutors, job coaches and job developers and business leaders that play an integral role in executing our goal of obtaining paid employment for individual with disabilities.
