      Support to find work

      You're not alone if you have hearing loss and you're unemployed. But help is available. Jobcentre Plus can help you to find work, and provide information about training so you have a better chance of finding a fulfilling job.

      People who are deaf or who have hearing loss are less likely to be in employment than those without a disability or long-term condition. But your condition shouldn't be a barrier to you getting the employment support you need from Jobcentre Plus.

      In this section we explain what Jobcentre Plus can do to help you find work, and how you can get the best out of the service and how to complain if Jobcentre Plus doesn't provide appropriate access to its services.

      Once you have a job, we look at how to talk to your employer about hearing loss and the types of support that are available to you at work, plus what you can do if your employer fails to support you.

      We’ve also included information to help Jobcentre Plus offices understand how they can deliver a better service to you, including coming to us for support and information.
