Agreement to help disabled people at work

Have your say

REMPLOY’S Sheffield-based service to help disabled people into work is looking into how to provide more support for people with ‘hidden impairments’.

The organisation, based on Campo Lane, has agreed to work closely with The Adsetts Partnership, to advise clients and employers.

“An individual’s disability is not always obvious,” said Remploy’s head of programmes Maxine Moss-Black.

“However, it not being recognised, either by the individual or by employers, can lead to people underperforming in their job or not being considered for employment in the first place.

“Remploy and TAP have jointly agreed to focus on helping employers implement what are often very simple and inexpensive changes in the workplace so that everybody, irrespective of disability, can perform in their jobs.”
