Papworth Trust is very proud to be a Disability Confident leader

The Disability Confident scheme supports employers to make the most of the talents disabled people can bring to your workplace. We have achieved our Level 3 Leader status and Disability Confident compliments the work we do and helps us to be recognised for supporting disabled people, while continually developing and improving.

This status also recognises the work we do to support organisations and disabled people in the wider community we work in. We are also able to help other employers to reach this level, and beyond through our journey together.

The Disability Confident scheme has 3 levels designed to support you at every step on your Disability Confident journey. You must complete each level before moving on to the next.

Gaining Level 1 status: 

To be recognised as Disability Confident Committed, you must agree to the Disability Confident commitments and identify at least one action that you’ll carry out to make a difference for disabled people.

Your business may be doing these things already. If so, the scheme is a great way of letting everyone know that you’re serious about equal opportunities for disabled people.

 Our offer:
  • Help you identify your gaps and support you to sign up                                                                                                                

Moving from Level 1 to Level 2:

Once you’ve signed up for level 1 you can progress to level 2, a Disability Confident Employer, by self-assessing your organisation around 2 themes:

  • Getting the right people for your business
  • Keeping and developing your people

Disability Confident Employers are recognised as going the extra mile to make sure disabled people get a fair chance.

 Our offer:

  • Help identify gaps, suggest ways of evidencing your practices for your self-assessment, support you to draw up an action plan


Moving from Level 2 to Level 3:

By becoming a Disability Confident Leader, you’ll be acting as a champion within your local and business communities.

  • If you’re interested in becoming Level 3, please get in contact and we’re happy to discuss how we can support.
