CamdenAbility is an innovative new project providing free support to businesses that are committed to improving their disability confidence.
Launched in partnership between Business Disability Forum (BDF), Camden Council and Cross River Partnership, the aim of CamdenAbility is to significantly increase the number of disabled Camden residents who are in full-time employment.
To achieve this, BDF is reaching out to Camden-based organisations that might wish to be part of the project and join a unique employer network dedicated to improving disability confidence across business.
Organisations that sign up to the CamdenAbility Network will receive extensive support from BDF and Cross River Partnership free of charge. We will help you ensure that your organisation is in the best shape to create a working environment where disabled people can thrive.
The support package is developed according to your organisational need but could for example include:
- tailored packages of consultancy from BDF;
- access to disability awareness events and training;
- networking and knowledge sharing events;
- support to employ disabled residents from Camden to put your learning into practice; and
- in-work support for employers that hire disabled candidates during the project.
The project offers KQ partners a unique opportunity to further engage with the local community and adopt disability best practice as part of a whole organisational approach.
