This chapter explores the operation of a quite different form of supported employment that has developed from grassroots movements and lacks statutory or central-government financial support. It notes that this version of supported employment, Job Coach Supported Employment, reflects the principle that all citizens have the right to work, since this is the key aspect of social inclusion in Western societies. The chapter outlines some central principles of Job Coach Supported Employment and then discusses some recent findings on its position in the UK. It uses case-study material to explore experiences of Job Coach Supported Employment by people with learning difficulties.

Keywords:   supported employment, Job Coach, social inclusion, UK, learning difficulties
