The Disability Confident Scheme

About the scheme

Disability Confident is designed as a learning journey with all employers starting at Level 1 and progressing through the scheme at their own pace. Accreditation for each level lasts for 3 years. No employer is too small or new to start the journey and even the most experienced employer will still find new techniques and best practices that can help them.

Over 18,000 businesses across the UK have already started the Disability Confident journey, including all main government departments, local councils and private sector organisations. Joining the scheme can help your organisation to better attract, recruit and retain disabled people and those with long-term health conditions. The free resources within the scheme provide timely and appropriate advice and  guidance to help you progress on your Disability Confident journey.
