Disability Confident encourages employers to recruit and retain disabled people.
Nearly 7 million people of working age in the UK are disabled or have a health condition. There has historically been a large gap between the numbers of disabled people employed compared with non disabled people.
Through the Disability Confident campaign, the government is working with employers to remove barriers, increase understanding and ensure that disabled people have the opportunities to fulfil their potential and realise their aspirations. Employers are crucial to improving employment outcomes for disabled people.
The campaign was launched at the Disability Employment Conference in July 2013, a short video ‘conference highlights’ is available - you can hear the Prime Minister and business speakers explain why it is so important for employers to support the campaign to become disability confident.
