²gether NHS Foundation Trust has been recognised for its commitment to ensuring people with a disability have the chance to fulfil their employment potential. The trust has now achieved ‘Disability Confident Leader’ status by showing how we are making the most of the talents people with disabilities can bring to the workplace.

Nick Grubb, Assistant HR Director at ²g said: “We are proud to be one of only a few NHS trusts which have been awarded the status of Disability Confident Leader. We are extremely pleased that our recruitment and retention processes have been given this recognition but we are not complacent and know that there is always more we can do”.

To achieve Disability Confident Leader status, the Trust had to complete a ‘Disability Confident’ self-assessment which was subject to an external challenge and validation process. This involved a validator looking at each of the criteria and being assured that we do what we say we are doing.

Having demonstrated that we have achieved Leader Status means we can now act as a champion for the Disability Confident scheme within our local and business communities. In doing so, we can encourage other employers to make the journey to become Disability Confident.

The Disability Confident scheme was launched in November 2016 replacing the Two Ticks scheme and is run by the Department for Work and Pensions. It provides employers with the skills, examples and confidence they need to recruit, retain and develop disabled employees and those with long term health conditions.
