Amazing news to hear that a combination of not-for-proft disability enterprises are creating 500 jobs for people with disabilities. Are you able to provide information on what these jobs might be? Are the jobs spread across a number of different industries? I am a university student running an 8 week campaign on the lack of employment available for people with disabilities. Employers need to open there eyes and consider disabled employees. I agree with you in that employers need to come to the realisation that people with disabilities have a strong drive and have the abilities to complete the tasks they’re after. A diverse workplace is key to all companies as the combination of age, gender, ethnicity and disabilities makes a business more balanced and happy! Please check out my blog which is targeted at mothers of disabled children: It aims to provide advice and aid mothers through the journey of dealing with a disabled child and possible future options for them. Best of luck with the creation of the jobs. Annabelle Powell
