Disabled People's Employment

Employing disabled people? Want to expand the pool of talent that’s available to you and take positive steps to diversify your workforce? Want to support the disabled employees already in your workplace?

The Welsh government is committed to improving employment opportunities for disabled people and making businesses as inclusive as possible, creating the conditions where all individuals can thrive.

Disabled People’s Employment Champions

The Welsh government has employed a network of Disabled People’s Employment Champions, supported by Business Wales Disabled People’s Employment Advisors, to provide advice, information and support to employers across Wales.

What is it?

This is a unique, free service for all employers in Wales regardless of size. The champions can liaise with you in a way which suits you and your business needs on a one-to-one basis or at staff meetings. 

Whether you’re looking to inject new talent into your team, retain existing staff who have become disabled, or want to ensure your workplace and HR policies are inclusive the champions can help. They can provide advice on this and any of the following:

  • Inclusive recruitment
  • Financial support
  • Practical advice on staff retention

What's in it for me?

By simply engaging with a champion you have the opportunity to access a tailored package of support for your business – helping it become a leader in inclusivity.
