If you are disabled or have a health condition

If you have a health condition or disability and need extra support to find or keep a job, a specialist disability employment adviser (DEA) could help you.

An adviser can:
  • carry out an assessment to discuss your job goals and any concerns you have about your capacity for work
  • help you to find the right job and provide advice and support on training and looking for a job
  • agree an action plan with you which goes through the steps you are going to take to get back into employment
  • let you know if you may be entitled to other in-work benefits such as Housing Benefit or Council Tax Reduction
  • advise you of the specialist programmes or schemes available to help people with disabilities.

A DEA is based at every job centre in Newham.
