Disability Confident

Dumfries & Galloway Disability Confident Event

You are warmly invited to join the Dept. of Work & Pensions Employer & Partner Engagement staff, on Friday 13th October at The Holiday Inn, The Crichton, Dumfries, DG1 4ZZ at 9am.

The Rt Hon David Mundell MP and Alister Jack MP will be attending along with a number of local businesses and partners to learn more about the benefits of being a Disability Confident Employer.

By working with local employers, role models and employees this event showcases how people with a disability can make a major contribution to local business success and challenge negative attitudes to disability employment.

Disabled people make up almost 20% of the working age population, many being highly qualified individuals. But employers can be reluctant to employ them, missing out on a valuable pool of potential and skills. At our Disability Confident event, we would like to show you how much they have to offer your business.

Join us to hear the support that is available, and the steps other local employers have taken to help disabled people gain employment and progress at work as well as the benefits their businesses have gained as a result.

Yours sincerely,

West of Scotland District Manager
