Proud to be ‘Disability Confident Committed’

Prepare to Achieve are proud to sign up to the Government’s ‘Disability Confident’ scheme.

The Disability Confident scheme supports employers to make the most of the talents disabled people can bring to your workplace. Through Disability Confident, employers challenge attitudes and increase people’s understanding of disability whilst removing barriers to disabled people entering the workforce.

As a Disability Confident Committed Employer, Prepare to Achieve have committed to:

  • ensure our recruitment process is inclusive and accessible
  • communicating and promoting vacancies
  • offering an interview to disabled people
  • anticipating and providing reasonable adjustments as required
  • supporting any existing employee who acquires a disability or long term health condition, enabling them to stay in work

In addition to those commitments, Prepare to Achieve are planning to offer work-based opportunities to disabled people within the community.

Lee Evans, National Business Development Manager, said:

“As a business, we want to support people to achieve their full potential. That’s why we’ve committed to support everybody, irrespective of whether they have a disability, in accessing workplace opportunities by joining the Disability Confident scheme.

“Disability Confident is a fantastic idea from the Department for Work & Pensions, challenging businesses to commit to making a difference for disabled people in their community. In our first year, we are Disability Confident Committed, meaning we’ve made clear commitments to support disabled people access the workforce. In the years ahead, we hope to move up the ladder as we show the values that underpin our business in practise and support disabled people in achieving their goals.”
