Event description

Description

More and more businesses are signing up to Disability Confident every week. The scheme helps them think differently about disability, and improve how they attract, recruit and retain disabled workers to make the most of the talents disabled people can bring to their workforce.

By attending this FREE event which is hosted by Grant Shapps MP, you will hear about the Disability Confident scheme which has 3 levels that have been designed to support you on our Disability Confident journey. You will also be able to find out about the funding available should you need to make any adjustments to ensure workers with disabilities, or physical or mental health conditions, aren't substantially disadvantaged when doing their jobs.

There will be bacon butty's and other delicious delicacies on arrival and the opportunity to network with other like-minded employers.
