We've been super busy behind the scenes recently, but couldn't resist sharing our latest commitment in our journal.
Growing up with a brother who has severe autism, epilepsy and a multitude of other additional needs, this is a topic EXTREMELY close to my heart.
Giving someone with disabilities a chance such a simple act of kindness that has the potential to make a huge difference in their lives.
People with disabilities have so much to offer and they should be given an opportunity to shine, just the same as everyone else. Giving someone a chance can also open up a world of possibilities and help them to realise their dreams and true potential. By showing compassion and extending a helping hand, you can make a real difference in someone’s life.
If you’re a business owner or employer, being disability confident is something that should be at the top of your to-do list. Not only is it the right thing to do, but it can have a positive impact on your business too.
What does being disability confident committed mean?
Being disability confident means creating an inclusive workplace where all employees are treated fairly, regardless of their disability. This can be done by providing reasonable adjustments, such as making changes to the workplace or providing additional support or equipment.
It also means providing training and support to ensure that staff can work to their full potential. By showing your commitment to being disability confident, you can help to eliminate any discrimination or negative attitudes towards disabled employees. This can help to create a more positive working environment, which can lead to increased productivity and a more engaged workforce.
Being disability confident also shows that you are committed to diversity and inclusion, which can help to attract and retain talent from all backgrounds. It can also help to improve your public image and build trust with customers and partners. In summary, being disability confident is an important step for any employer. It demonstrates that you are committed to creating a workplace where everyone can thrive, regardless of their disability.
Anyway, just wanted to check in and shout about this because...well... we're buzzing about it.
Stay safe people, and check in soon!
