Business Disability Forum logo

Business Disability Forum (BDF)

Description:

Business Disability Forum (BDF) is a world-leading, not-for-profit membership body of business and the public sector working in collaboration towards disability-smart organisations.  Jointly, their Partners and Members employ about 20% of the UK workforce.

The Government’s Disability Confident Scheme is designed to help employers recruit and retain people with disabilities and long-term conditions.  There are three levels of accreditation:

  • Level 1 (Disability Confident Committed),
  • Level 2 (Disability Confident Employer), and
  • Level 3 (Disability Confident Leader).

Employers can undertake the first two levels on their own, but for the third level, employers need to seek external validation on their Level 2 self-assessment.  Business Disability Forum can help you with this as they offer free Disability Confident accreditations for Business Disability Forum Members and Partners.

BDF has been around for over 25 years and have made it their mission to create and build, factual, thought provoking, inspiring, essential information to enable organisations to be confident that their people within facilities, IT, L&D teams, HR Teams have the appropriate tools, enabling organisations to share best practice on disability and access authoritative advice, guidance and support on attracting and retaining disabled talent and providing excellent service to disabled customers.

There are two ways to join Business Disability Forum - as a Member or as a Partner, and they welcome Shropshire-based businesses.

For more information, please follow the link to visit their website or use the contact details shown if you would like to join and wish to discuss what level of involvement would be most effective for your organisation.
