    • Ensure that all employees develop the appropriate level of disability awareness

    • Ensure there is a mechanism in place to discuss with disabled employees, what both parties can do to make sure disabled employees can develop and use their abilities


    We will review these commitments each year and assess what has been achieved, plan ways to improve on them and let employees and Jobcentre Plus know about progress and future plans.
