Did you know that 7.6 million people in the UK have a disability or health condition? The Covid-19 pandemic brought unprecedented challenges for those with accessibility needs, but it also revealed that many barriers to employment were unnecessary.
We have been actively concerned with removing these barriers as an employer for a number of years - and it has recently become embedded in our project work - and we are now proud to announce that we have been certified as Disability Confident Committed. The Disability Confident scheme has been designed by employers and disabled people’s representatives to support and recognise businesses that are actively inclusive in their recruitment and retention practices. At present, over 20,000 companies are registered under the scheme.
