International Day of Persons with Disabilities

Did you know that 1 in 5 of us will be affected by disability at some point in our lives?
There are approximately 14.1 million disabled people in the UK – far more than you might realise. Typically, we think of a wheelchair user but many people are also living with invisible disabilities and have much wider access needs than we might realise. In recognition of International Day of Persons with Disabilities on 3 December, we are running an online event to challenge our perception of disability. We will discuss what steps an employer can take to create more awareness for those impacted directly and indirectly, whether employees, visitors or those applying for a job and how the introduction of a disability passport can make a real difference.
