The Government’s Disability Confident scheme helps employers make the most of the opportunities provided by employing disabled people. It is voluntary and has been developed by employers and representatives of disabled people.
The Disability Confident scheme supports employers to make the most of the talents disabled people can bring to your workplace.
Being Disability Confident means that we are:
- challenging attitudes towards disability
- increasing understanding of disability
- removing barriers to disabled people and those with long-term health conditions
- ensuring that disabled people have the opportunities to fulfil their potential and realise their aspirations
Now we are celebrating our second year of being Disability Confident, we’ve been recognised as going the extra mile to make sure disabled people get a fair chance.
