British Association for Supported Employment (BASE)

Our purpose is to support, promote and develop the principles and provision of supported employment. We encourage all Supported Employment organisations to join us.


BASE aims to:
• Assist people with disabilities by encouraging the provision of support into employment.
• Endorse & promote quality standards in the delivery of Supported Employment.
• Nurture & encourage the setting up of new supported employment services.
• Promote the training of supported employment personnel throughout the UK.
• Provide regular, detailed information including an advisory & development service to association members.
• Liaise & negotiate with national and international government & non-government organisations to promote Supported Employment and the aims of the Association.


BASE is concerned with establishing collective action on national issues that cannot be addressed by individual agencies and members alone. BASE has helped to develop National Occupational Standards for Supported Employment, an accredited qualification and a framework of service quality standards. We want to see better quality support available to everyone who needs it.


Supported Employment is a way of providing assistance to people with a disability who need extra support to move towards and into work. BASE member organisations have the specialist knowledge to give you this support.


Supported Employment is also known as IPS (Individual Placement and Support), an American term for the employment support offered to people who experience mental health conditions.


You can find out more about Supported Employment here.


BASE member organisations can give you advice and help all through the process of looking for and gaining a job. You can search for an organisation or service close to you here.
