We are delighted to announce that in 2023, New Forest Disability became certified as a Disability Confident Leader.
This is a step up from Disability Confident Employer, which we had previously attained, and the highest level of accreditation. It’s a fantastic achievement for us and means that we can continue to demonstrate that we employ from a wide pool of talent, as well as retain and develop opportunities for people living with disabilities and other health conditions.
Being a Disability Confident Leader also means we now act as a champion for other businesses, encouraging them to follow our lead. By reaching a wider group of prospective candidates, it also makes us an employer of choice for people with disabilities who might otherwise be struggling to find employment.
