We are pleased to share that we have achieved the highest accreditation of Disability Confident and we now hold ‘Leader’ status here at the Motability Foundation.

What is the ‘Disability Confident’ scheme?

The Disability Confident scheme supports employers to make the most of the talents disabled people can bring to their workplace.

The scheme has three different levels, each with their own themes, challenges and actions. ‘Leader’ status is the highest an employer can achieve.

Continuous improvement

We have also received some helpful feedback of areas of improvement to maintain our ‘Leader’ status:

  • Capturing more data across use of mental health first aiders, applications through disability specific job boards, training participation rates etc.
