About Us:

 

Project SEARCH is a life-changing project opening up a world of opportunities for young people with SEND. The project, which is run at Whipps Cross Hospital, helps young people with SEND gain useful employability skills within a supportive and understanding environment.  From September 2022, the Project will also be run at Britain’s oldest hospital, St Bartholomew’s Hospital in the City of London.  Both hospitals are part of East London’s Barts Health NHS Trust.

 

As part of the project, young people aged 17-24 undertake three work placements at the hospitals working in a range of clinical and non-clinical departments as porters, receptionists and assistants.

 

Throughout the year-long programme, interns received intensive, personalised support from exceptional mentors who ensure they feel secure and comfortable every step of the way. Support might include helping interns travel independently to work, giving them the confidence to speak to new people or identifying ways to work through a list of tasks. This support enables our interns to excel in their placements and become highly-valued team members making a meaningful contribution to their department.

With an employment success rate of over 70%, Project SEARCH has a proven track record of helping young people with SEND secure fulfilling and meaningful jobs.  Many graduates of the programme go on to gain full-time, paid employment which they have secured through competitive application processes.

The impact of Project SEARCH cannot be underestimated; not only does it provide worthwhile employment, it also increases interns’ confidence and self-belief and, most importantly, gives them a sense of purpose in life.
