Disability Confident campaign – one year on

Posted by on September 15, 2014 in E Plus Blog, Home Page, Information & Advice, My Support My Money, Workforce | 0 comments

Since it was launched a year ago the Disability Confident campaign has reached over 1,100 employers and received hundreds of pledges from organisations committed to improving employment outcomes for disabled people.

To mark the first anniversary of the campaign, DWP has launched two portals that provide information and guidance on how to support disabled talent.

  • The Young Person’s Portal – this gives young people, and those who work with them, the information they need to help them get the job they want;
  • An updated Employer’s Portal – this includes new information on impairments, recruitment practices and disability law.


On 18 July, partners, stakeholders and employers also provided supportive communications about the anniversary and the campaign. They used their own networks to increase the communications reach and impact on social media. As a result the hashtag #disabilityconfident delivered a cumulative social media reach of over 19.1 million.

You can let DWP  how you are making a difference to the employment outcomes for disabled people email dwp.disabilityconfident@dwp.gsi.gov.uk

You can follow what is happening on social media by using hashtag #disabilityconfident.

DWP have also published a series of Disability Confident videos.
