Trust named Disability Confident Employer for further two years

28 Aug 19 - 28 Aug 20

We are proud to announce that the Trust has had its status as a Disability Confident Employer confirmed for the next two years.

The Disability Confident scheme supports employers to make the most of the talents disabled people can bring to the workplace and the scheme aims to help successfully recruit and retain disabled people and those with health conditions.


As part of the process of retaining our status as a Disability Confident Employer we:

  • Have undertaken and successfully completed the Disability Confident self-assessment
  • Are taking all of the core actions to be a Disability Confident employer
  • Are offering at least one activity to get the right people for our business and at least one activity to keep and develop our people.

 

Speaking about this achievement, Clive Saunders, Interim Equality & Diversity Lead said: “I am extremely proud that we have achieved this status for a further two years. We know there is more we can do and should do if we are going to take the next step to becoming a Disability Confident Leader. We are now exploring what more we need to do to give greater access to opportunities for disabled people in the Trust.”
