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.
