Here at Careers with Disabilities, we understand that disabled people face additional barriers when searching for a job. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to have a successful, well-supported career.
Our aim is to provide the tools, information and guidance to help connect jobseekers to employers. With the number of employed disabled people increasing by 1.34 million from 2013 to 2019, we are supporting the continued growth of disabled people in accessible work.
There are tens of thousands of people with health conditions, long-term illnesses and disabilities who want to work, but are prevented from reaching their potential due to employer misconceptions around accessibility.
We want to make looking for an accessible job as easy and stress-free as possible. Our guide for disabled people provides all essential information relating to the world of employment.
Careers with Disabilities can support you whether that be with jobs for people with learning difficulties, health conditions, or people with visible or non-visible disabilities. We have made sure to cover everything from your employment rights, exploring the range of career opportunities, or gaining further help through financial support and disability allowances.
With the devastating effects of Covid-19 on the UK economy, we understand that both job seekers and employers are facing further challenges that no one could have anticipated. You are not alone in this struggle.
We are here to support you every step of the way. As government guidelines are constantly changing, we will do our best to bring you all the latest information, clearly and concisely.
As an employer, it is important to acknowledge the benefits that employing a disabled person can bring. Alongside the value of providing an opportunity to someone who may have previously been wrongfully overlooked, disabled people can provide your business with enhanced skills, increased diversity and knowledge to help your products or services be as accessible as possible. This is why we are dedicated to providing support and information to employers about all aspects relating to employing a disabled person, including funding, local assistance and more.
