Lifeworks – A Disability Confident Leader

Lifeworks recognised as Disability Confident Leader

Lifeworks Charity is now recognised as a Disability Confident Leader, the highest level of recognition on the Government’s Disability Confident Scheme. The scheme supports employers to make the most of the talents that disabled people can bring to the workplace. Lifeworks are now in the company of just 2% of Disability Confident employers in the whole of the UK that have attained Leader status.

As a Disability Confident organisation, Lifeworks is part of a recognised network of businesses who strive to play a leading role in changing employer’s attitudes for the better and benefit from the diverse skills, experiences and views of disabled employees.

Brian Harty, CEO of Lifeworks said:

“We’re delighted to have been awarded Disability Confident Leader. As a charity supporting people with a learning disability we know how important it is to be able to reduce and remove the barriers that people with disabilities face on a daily basis. We are not only committed to this with all of the that we support but also by taking positive action to reduce and remove barriers for disabled people gaining and remaining in employment with Lifeworks.”

In becoming a Disability Confident Leader, Lifeworks have demonstrated that they are not only taking positive action to recruit and retain disabled people but are also actively sharing best practice and encouraging other organisations to join the scheme.
