Disability Confident free awareness event for businesses

Published on: 13/09/2018

A free awareness breakfast workshop will be taking place at The Priory Hotel in Louth on Tuesday 9th October between 8am and 10.30am, to help businesses to understand what is involved in recruiting and supporting an employee with a disability.

In East Lindsey District alone there are around 8000 unemployed people with some form of disability. For an employer based in the region, this event is designed to help them understand what support and assistance is out there to become part of the solution to employ people with a disability who are unemployed. 

Disability Confident is about recruiting and retaining disabled people and people with health conditions, for their skills and talent. Being Disability Confident could help a business to discover someone they just can’t do without!

The event will provide expert advice and signposting to information available to a business, helping them to become disability aware. There will also be some inspiring talks from small and medium sized businesses who have successfully recruited individuals with a disability, demonstrating how this has positively impacted their business.

For more information or to book your place on this event, please contact Julie Fisher on 07398 893993  or email Julie.fisher@bishopg.ac.uk.
