Come and join Leonard Cheshire’s free Employer Workshop

Posted: 22nd February 2018

Nearly seven million people of working age in the UK are disabled or have a long-term health condition. That is almost 1 in 5 of us.


We know that many employers are committed to creating an inclusive workplace. However, we understand that for some there can be worries around supporting disabled employees. We would like to find out more about your experiences of employing disabled people, your challenges and successes and invite you to a free workshop in Edinburgh, on the 14th March.


On the day you will be hear from others who have found creative ways of enabling more disabled people to flourish in their workplace. You will also be able to find out about the support we provide to employers and learn more about providing more opportunities to disabled people.


Refreshments will be provided and there will be an opportunity for networking at the end of the event. The event will take place in P & G Church, 46 York Place, Edinburgh from 11am to 3pm on Wednesday 14th March.


To attend, please confirm by either replying to this email, or signing up via the Eventbrite link
