SAMEE is a Dorset based charity founded in 2016 by our CEO Samantha Everard. The name SAMEE represents Support and Mentoring Enabling Entrepreneurship. Our charitable purpose is to enable disabled people to gain further independence through exploring non-traditional forms of employment that will effectively fit around their learning needs.

Day-to-day the SAMEE team work with people from all walks of life, from school aged children up to adults looking for a new career path more accessible to their needs. We don’t believe in limiting our support services based on the level of disability. Instead, we pride ourselves in the quality and adaptability of our support enabling us to provide bespoke guidance no matter the need. 

With strategic partnerships in both the employment and education sectors, as well as 3 qualified careers professionals on the team, we ensure provision of the highest quality information, advice and guidance. SAMEE have also been Disability Confident Leaders since 2018. 

We have come a long way since 2016! We are proud to offer services such as 1:2:1 Self-employment mentoring which is completely  flexible to work with you, and sociable group workshops based around employability, self-employment, wellbeing and confidence building.

SAMEE has co-created with the help of our amazing disabled beneficiaries an NCFE accredited Level 1 Self-employment programme which can be completed on it’s own or alongside our newest programme… the UK’s first Self-Employment Supported Internship!! (which we are very excited about)

“Building a business from scratch by yourself can be daunting and lonely but having the SAMEE Charity by my side from start to finish has been crucial in the success of launching my business.”

“They’ve helped me to keep on track with the more business side of my business and without them I definitely wouldn’t be as far along as i am now or as confident in my own work, so thank-you!”
