Employing a Person with a Disability

• Back to Employers

“Nearly seven million people of working age in the UK are disabled or have a health condition. With an ageing population likely to increase by around 40 per cent by 2022, and increased competition for the best talent, investing in an effective workplace adjustment service is an investment in employee productivity, inclusion and engagement.”

Workplace Adjustments

Many workplaces are aware of the types of adjustments they can provide. However, recognising and being able to implement such adjustments may require additional support. Access Ability has the expertise and knowledge of disability to support and advise employers on simple changes that they can make to provide a more inclusive environment.

How we support organisations.

We have the ability to work with organisations of variant sizes to provide tailored support to guide employers through the different stages of employment. We will share our expertise and knowledge of disability and long term health conditions, taking away the uncertainty, making the entire process stress free. We will visit the workplace and work together to identify and implement reasonable adjustments. We have expert knowledge of Access to Work and support with grant applications to access funds for equipment, travel costs, interview support and/or in work support.
