Helping Your Business Become Disability Confident

Diversify are experts in the field of disability confident business consulting. Our work aims to transform society’s views of people living with disabilities and impairments so that they can live fulfilling lives with confidence and engagement in the community.

Diversify has achieved ‘Disability Confident Leader’ status, the highest level possible in the Government’s Disability Confident scheme.

Disability Confident encourages employers to be positive about the skills that people with disabilities can bring to the workforce and remove barriers to recruiting and retaining employees with disabilities. To be a Leader means doing the right thing, setting the right example, and sharing best practice.

Diversify want to encourage more companies to make sure they’re not missing out on this huge, untapped pool of talent. We are proud to be a fully inclusive employer helping to positively change attitudes, behaviours and cultures.

We consult one-on-one with business leaders and their staff to help them become more disability confident.

What is disability confident consulting? It’s an approach to disability and impairment that shifts the focus away from what can’t be done, where the discourse often takes place, and pivots to what can be done, a discussion about the possibilities and the solutions we can put into place to empower disabled and impaired people.

From private organisations and government associations, to care homes and educational facilities, we empower organisations with the knowledge that they have an active role to play in serving the disabled and impaired members of their community.
