We can also support you to access funding and support for reasonable adjustments, should you need any adaptations or special equipment to do your job.
Why is the scheme important?
Remploy’s mission is to transform the lives of disabled people and those who experience complex barriers to work by providing sustainable employment opportunities.
We believe in greater inclusion and equality for disabled people through sustainable employment.
We believe that work is a key element of an independent and fulfilling life, and that everyone has skills and abilities to offer. We work extensively with people to help them to identify, develop and make the most of those abilities.
To achieve this goal, our Employment Services have invested significant resources into supporting disabled people and those experiencing complex barriers to work into mainstream employment. We have a network of more than 64 town and city centre branches and offices and a comprehensive range of tailored support services provided through them.
We recognise the fundamental role that leading employers play in delivering sustainable employment. We also recognise that employing disabled people delivers real social and economic value for business. So, by helping employers to better understand and act upon the benefits of employing disabled people, in effect transforming business, we can help to transform the lives of individuals.
