Positive about disabled people

Positive about disabled peopleThe Trust is positive about the employment of disabled people and continues to promote this through the use of the 'two tick' disability symbol.

In doing so the Trust has adopted the following five disability symbol commitments:

  1. Recruitment: to interview all disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria for a job vacancy and consider them on their abilities
  2. Consulting employees with a disability: to ensure there is a mechanism in place to discuss at any time, but at least once a year, with disabled employees, what can be done to make sure they can develop and use their abilities and review progress
  3. Retaining people who become disabled: to make every effort when employees become disabled to make sure they stay in employment
  4. Developing awareness: to take action to ensure that all employees develop the appropriate level of disability awareness needed to make these commitments work
  5. Reviewing progress and keeping people informed: each year to review the five commitments and what has been achieved, to plan ways to improve on them and let employees and Jobcentre Plus know about progress and future plans.
