BCHC is 'disability confident' employer

BCHC is proud to have been awarded ‘disability confident’ employer status, recognising the Trust’s commitment to recruiting and retaining the skills and talents of disabled people and people with health conditions.

Over 7 million people (17.5%) of working age in the UK are disabled or have a health condition.

The government has launched the 'disability confident' initiative to support employers in removing barriers, increasing understanding and ensuring that disabled people have the opportunities to fulfil their potential and realise their aspirations.

By working to achieve and maintain 'disability confident' status, we are joining employers across the UK in committing to:

  • challenge attitudes towards disability
  • increase understanding of disability
  • remove barriers to disabled people and those with long term health conditions in employment
  • ensure that disabled people have the opportunities to fulfill their potential and realise their aspirations.
