AMH gives those who lack work experience, the opportunity to develop confidence and skills in a work environment through employment programmes, volunteering and supported work environments.

Clients are “Working it Out” with AMH, whether it be through personal development training, work placements, living a healthier lifestyle, or developing friendships and social networks – all of which have a positive impact on their mental health and wellbeing.

Mencap – The voice of learning disability

We work in partnership with people with a learning disability, and all our services support people to live life as they choose. Our work includes providing high-quality, flexible services that allow people to live as independently as possible in a place they choose and campaigning for the changes that people with a learning disability want.

We have strong relations with a local network of more than 500 affiliated groups. Our local groups are individual charities in their own right, but we work closely with them to ensure people with a learning disability and their families have support locally as well as nationally.



NOW works with people with learning disabilities, difficulties and those on the Autistic Spectrum to help them gain qualifications and life/work experience and support them move into jobs with a future. NOW’s work is about social inclusion and leads to the people they work with having better health, a better education and a brighter future.

NOW place collaboration at the heart of their delivery working closely with public, private and 3rd sector organisations and employers to bring a wealth of resources to our working relationships.



We support over 250 people with a learning disability each year in Belfast in employment each year. We do this through specialist employment service and social enterprise.

Orchardville’s Mission is To work in partnership with young people and adults with learning disability to prepare them for employment and greater independence.
