Welsh Government launches Disability Employment Guidelines
Welsh Government has published a toolkit for employers giving advice on how to attract, recruit, develop and retain disabled employees, as well as what support and resources are available to help employers create a workforce that is representative and open to all.
The report titled A More Equal Wales: A practical guide for employers to employing disabled people was produced to encourage employers to hire more disabled people and create a inclusive workplaces.
The guidelines are based specifically on the social model of disability, giving practical advice on how to make recruitment, hiring, retention and development/progression accessible to disabled people. There is also a handy guide on using social model language and a list of resources and useful contacts including our project partners Agoriad Cyf, ELITE Supported Employment and Learning Disability Wales.
