The Business Disability Forum are a not for profit membership organisation which exists to transform the life chances of disabled people, working through and with business to create a disability-smart world.
We do this by bringing business leaders, disabled people, and Government together to understand what needs to change to improve the life opportunities and experiences of disabled people in employment, economic growth, and society more widely.
Our 300+ Members and Partners represent a huge cross sector of UK and global business, employing an estimated 20% of the UK workforce and 8 million people worldwide. We provide them with a wealth of practical advice and support, thought leadership and networking opportunities so that they can share what works – and what doesn’t!
In turn, we share this feedback and experience with government and policy makers to help shape disability policy that works.
By working for us, you will be part of an organisation that exists to change people’s lives. “Rewarding work”, “stimulating”, and “feeling appreciated” are just some of the things our staff tell us they love about working at Business Disability Forum. We believe we offer great staff benefits, including an Employee Assistance Service (including access to counselling and other wellbeing services), private health insurance, life insurance and permanent health insurance, plus a 5 per cent workplace pension contribution.
Disability and people inclusion are central to why we exist. It’s who we are. We believe every individual should be given the opportunity to thrive and be their best without barriers in their way, and we want this for our own staff as well. While we rely less on ‘counting’ diversity profiles and we instead want to ensure everyone can work and develop in the ways that are best for them, over 60 per cent of our staff have told us they have a disability or long-term condition.
