We are pleased to announce AbilityNet has achieved Disability Confident Leader status as of 16 June 2020. We have been a Disability Confident Employer for some time, but this new status puts us in the top tier of the Disability Confident government lead scheme, amongst organisations such as Barclays, BT, the Cabinet Office, Fujitsu, Heathrow, John Lewis Partnership, Lloyds Banking Group and many other household names.

The Disability Confident scheme aims to help employers make the most of the opportunities provided by employing disabled people. It is voluntary and has been developed by employers and disabled people's representatives. As experts in disability and technology we are ecstatic to have achieved the accolade of a Disability Confident Leader.
