PossAbilities Employment Team


Greater Manchester Working Well Programme (GMWW)

In partnership with Pure Innovations we deliver the GMWW programme across Rochdale, Bury, Oldham, Tameside and Stockport. This programme is designed to get people with learning disabilities and mental health diagnoses into real paid jobs.

Workchoice and Specialist Employability Support (SES)

PossAbilities Employment also delivers the Workchoice Programme and SES throughout the Borough of Rochdale. Workchoice is a DWP funded programme, which PossAbilities Employment is sub contracted to deliver in partnership with Shaw Trust and the European Social fund.

SES is also a DWP funded programme, aimed at those furthest from the job market, which we are subcontracted to deliver in partnership with Shaw Trust, 3SC, the Royal National College for the Blind and the European Social Fund.

If you would like to know more about Workchoice or SES, are interested in participating in any of the programmes or have a client who would like to be referred, then please contact a member of our team on the number above.

At PossAbilities we are all too aware of the difference having a job can make to someone’s life. It can help build self- esteem confidence and lead to more independence. Over the years the service has supported hundreds of individuals to secure employment. We work with service users to identify individual skills and strengths and then match these with a prospective employer. We have established relationships with a number of employers and local colleges. Over the last 25 years we have supported a range of people to access employment, volunteer and or training opportunities.
