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.

CoronavirusDue to the social distancing measures of Coronavirus not all of Lifeworks services are running as they usually do.

Our residential services, Robins and Sesame, continue to run and have provided a safe home for the residents. Unfortunately, we have had to stop the short stay service at Robins for the time being. Our specialist College was closed for the Easter holidays but has now re-opened for a small number of students. Community Projects’ in-person services have been put on hold but the team have been very creative, launching Safe-Space a new online platform to provide a much-needed service to young people who are feeling isolated at home.

We are still working our way through these times where there is uncertainty and we are responding to guidance and instruction as information is sent to us. We look forward to the time when we can re-instate all of our services but the safety and wellbeing of our service users, families and staff is our top priority always.

Please continue to find out more about our services and get in touch with us to discuss them at any time. Email [email protected] or call 01803 840 744
