Disability Confident scheme

Source: Department for Work & Pensions | | 13/11/2019

The Disability Confident scheme was launched in November 2016 to provide employers with the skills and confidence they need to recruit, retain and develop disabled people in the workplace. The scheme has three levels (Disability Confident Committed, Disability Confident Employer and Disability Confident Leader) and employers must complete each level before moving on to the next. Over 15,000 businesses have so far signed up to the scheme.

On the third anniversary of the scheme, a series of changes to it have been announced to help employers achieve their goal of workplace inclusivity. These changes include:

  • Requiring Disability Confident Leader businesses to publicly report on their disability employment using a Voluntary Reporting Framework and to ensure disabled people are on their payroll
  • Extending membership for new signups to three years
  • Changing the terms of membership to make it explicit that senior members must employ disabled people.
