Description

Join us for a free event hosted by the Disability Cooperative Network for Museums (DCN) and the Natural History Museum.

Background:
Disability Confident is a government scheme that is designed to help organisations recruit and retain disabled people and people with health conditions for their skills and talent. Currently only a small number of museums have signed up to Disability Confident, this event is to support those in the museum sector who are interested in what the scheme entails.
