Dear reader,

It's that time of year again!  Our National Supported Employment week is upon us again.  How far we have come in 7 short years. We have grown from 358 Shadows in year one to over 600 Shadows in 2014!  This is not possible without the true dedication, determination and hard work of all you service personal the length and breadth of the country.  All our Shadow participants, I hope you enjoy you placements and get value from them and use them as the start of your career journey.  Once again Employers big and small, public and private have got behind us and opened their doors to host all the placements for which we are most grateful. Last but not least a big thank you to the hard working team at IASE and volunteers who have put their collective shoulders to the wheel to make sure everything runs smoothly once again.

Greg Barry


National Chairperson
