We are delighted to have successfully achieved Disability Confident Leader accreditation.

Being a Disability Confident Leader means we are helping people with disabilities secure jobs within CHDA as well as taking action to keep and develop our employees.

It also means we are a leading advocate for employing disabled people and are helping other organisations become Disability Confident.

By continuing our Disability Confident journey, we are helping to ensure that disabled people and those with long term health conditions have the opportunities to fulfil their potential and realise their aspirations.

“We are committed to continuing our work advocating the value of employing people with disabilities and long term health conditions. Being awarded the Disability Confident Leader accreditation is testament to the hard work we are putting in to support and attract people with disabilities” - Dr Paul Williams, Programme Director, CHDA

Disability Confident is a government scheme that promotes the benefits to businesses of recruiting people with disabilities as well as offering advice and support to employers. Over 5,000 organisations have signed up to the Disability Confident scheme.
