1 in 5 of the working-age population are classed as disabled
Yet in 2023, the disability employment gap is 29%. In March 2023, the Government published the Transforming Support white paper with proposals aimed at helping ‘more disabled people and people with health conditions to start, stay and succeed in work.’
Our Disability at Work workshop will provide an introduction to managing disability in the workplace, equipping participants with the confidence to interact with and support their disabled colleagues.
