The Department for Transport (DfT) and its executive agencies are proud to have achieved the standard of Disability Confident Employer. The scheme has been launched to support the government’s commitment to halve the employment gap between disabled and non-disabled people. It replaces the old ‘Two Ticks’ accreditation.
The new scheme will help us to continue to make the most of the opportunities provided by employing disabled people. It aims to challenge attitudes and increase understanding of disability by removing barriers so disabled people have an equal opportunity to fulfil their potential.
Philip Rutnam, Permanent Secretary, said:
“I want the Department to be a truly great place to work – where everyone feels their contribution is welcomed and has an equal chance to be the best they can be.”
As the Civil Service Disability Champion Philip wants the Department to now aim for the third and final level of accreditation: ‘next year I want DfT to be a Disability Confident Leader’.
