BucksWorkability Website Rebuild

We need a new way for disabled people to find the most appropriate employability information and support services in Bucks, and we want you to take a leading role.

Buckinghamshire has a dense, overlapping and opaque network of services supporting disabled people into work.

Volunteer team members will redesign the BucksWorkability website, a site originally built by the NHS to support employment of disabled people. All volunteers will receive the necessary training to complete the work and improve their employment prospects. 

What makes this programme special? 

  • No fixed predetermined plans: team members decide how best to improve the site together 
  • No fixed roles: work together as required, share skills and knowledge and find tasks which match your skills or interests 
  • 5 hours direct training and guidance per week 
  • A standout piece of work experience to really impress employers 
  • Make a difference to disabled jobseekers in Bucks. The BucksWorkabilty group consists of 34 organisations compromising charities and local government authorities. The new website is crucial in achieving our aim of greater collaboration between support services, employers and disabled job seekers.
