Richard at work

I realized my heart was set on working with people and helping them find career opportunities. Here I am today and it’s something I enjoy.

Your future is open. Although people with disabilities often face barriers moving into the world of work, many do succeed. Many discover exciting jobs inspired by their interests and abilities.
