We are a national charity promoting opportunities for young people and adults with any kind of impairment in post-16 education, training and employment.

We provide a free information and advice service which helps disabled people to overcome financial and physical barriers, ignorance and discrimination so that they can study, train or find work.

We inform and influence key policy makers to improve legal rights and support for disabled people in post-16 education and training.

Promote best practice through keeping professionals up to date and informed about policy changes, providing the opportunity for exchanging information and ideas and to be more closely involved with our work. We can train your staff and provide expert advice on policies, practice and procedures concerning disabled people including how to meet your needs under the Disability Discrimination Act and the Disability Equality Duty.

We conduct research and develop projects on education and disability issues to address gaps in provision and to take forward new ideas.

We have a Young People’s Website for disabled young people who want information about the various options and choices in education, training, volunteering and work – http://www.skill.org.uk/youth/.
