Equality & Best Practice


The Equality Act 2010 legally protects people from discrimination in the workplace and in wider society.

Since its introduction, employers have a legal obligation to ensure their premises and services are accessible for everyone, including disabled employees or clients.

We work with companies and organisations to ensure they are meeting their obligations under the Act and are not discriminating against anyone with a disability. 

We’re also a Disability Confident Leader. That means we can help businesses make sure their recruitment processes and policies are inclusive and accessible. The Disability Confident scheme is backed by the Department For Work & Pensions. It aims to help employers successfully recruit and retain disabled people and those with health conditions.
