Disability Consultancy Service

Our consultancy services provide an opportunity for businesses to gain support and advice from highly trained and specialist consultants.

The service is available for both general advice, for example reviewing policies and practice and making recommendations, and for work on specific issues, for example obtaining quality standards such as the Government’s Disability Confident Standard. We can also undertake work-based assessments, support recruitment and assist with complaints’ processes. We also offer specialist and generalist disability awareness training and accessibility audits.

Disability Confident Package

The Government’s Disability Confident scheme enables employers to develop and implement inclusive recruitment practices and gain the benefits of having access to the widest pool of talent available. The scheme helps employers recruit and retain the best possible people and also helps customers and other businesses to identify those businesses which are committed to equality.

We provide a package of training and support for employers who want to achieve the Disability Confident Standard. Our consultants will work with you through all the stages so your company can achieve Disability Confident Leader status, the highest of the 3 levels.
