About the British Association for Supported Employment
BASE is a membership organisation for supported employment agencies and supported businesses in the UK. This site gives a wide range of information and services to our members and others interested in supported employment. BASE was formed in 2006 through the merger of the National Association of Supported Employment and Association for Supported Employment. Both associations had been active in the area of supported employment in the UK since the early 1990's. It was felt that a unified voice was essential to protect the interests of the industry and to develop best practice within it.

For more in-depth, interactive support, there are regular training courses to assist with both management and delivery of supported employment provision.
Current BASE campaigns include:
How savage are the cuts going to be? BASE wants to highlight the potential dangers.
Just how realistic is it to fund employment support through personal budgets?
Work Choice is the DWP funded programme that replaces the Workstep and Work Preparation schemes.
Our new Knowledge Base brings together information from across supported employment and related fields to inform policy, practice and development.
