Steps Into Support?

Submitted by Tubeworker on Fri, 20/03/2020 - 09:08

Steps Into Work students have been told that the scheme is now on hold until September, due to the Covid-19 crisis.

While this may be sensible in the circumstances, there are consequences which do not yet seem to have been addressed. Steps Into Work students are autistic and/or learning-disabled, and many rely greatly on a stable routine. The disruption to their routine may cause great distress to them and difficulty for their families.

The suspension may also delay opportunities to take up jobs and earn a wage (SiW is unpaid).

It is good that RMT has written to the company asking for support for SiW students during this time.
