Disability Issues

4 Hour Workshop
Tailored To Your Needs And Run At Your Site

Why Should You Run This Workshop At Your Organisation?

People with disabilities represent a large minority in the UK. Such disabilities may have little impact upon a person’s ability to work, or they may have a major impact requiring considerable support and assistance. It is a common misconception that a person with a disability will be blind or in a wheelchair. The legal definition as per the Equality Act, is far broader and therefore it is highly likely that you already have an employee with a disability, or an existing employee will develop one.

Employers that deal effectively with disability related issues will be better placed to utilise the skills and potential of people with disabilities, allowing them to make a valuable contribution in the workplace.

You can send us your questions in advance and we will try to incorporate them into the session.
