On the 31st of May, Siraaj and I went to the Ladies Walk centre in Sedgley to help the MPs write the employment White Paper for their People's Parliament in Dudley. The White Paper is a long document which includes a list of actions the MPs want the professionals to do, times when this will be done and by who. This White Paper will be presented to the professionals at the first Parliament meeting on the 30th July.
Then in the afternoon, we met with two Job Coaches in Dudley called Kay Cartwright and Judith Rumble to tell them about this Parliament. A Job Coach is there to help people with a disability to find a job. We told them about what the Parliament is and who we already met, who we are going to meet and what we have done. We explained the 3 outcomes. One of which was about Job Carving. The Job coaches told us about how they supported people to find a job. They also told us a couple of success stories when they have helped people. As Job carving is one of the targets, the Job Coaches told us about how one of the people they support has being doing a job as a PA in Andrea-Pope Smith's office through Job carving.
They agreed to come to the first People's Parliament meeting to talk about Job carving on the 30th July 2012.
