News from the National Assembly of Wales: Diversity Special Interest Group

Following the meeting with Eluned Morgan, AM, Minister for Welsh language and lifelong Learning with the Diversity Special interest group we have developed a new section of the Business Skills Gateway dedicated to encouraging employers to recruit more disabled people.

For the very first time, the platform brings together the details of all support services available to employers and practical information to assist the recruitment of people with disabilities.This includes information on DWP’s Access to Work scheme and, for smaller businesses, the contact details for their Small Employer Adviser, of which there are nine across Wales.

As an easily accessible, one-stop-shop for employers, this platform aims to promote greater understanding of disability and sets out how employers can take positive steps to diversify their workforce.

The information and support presented here encourage and promote a greater understanding of disability and shows how you can develop your recruitment and employment practices to improve the job and career prospects for disabled people.
