The Humber Region aims to take great strides towards reducing the disability employment gap, already businesses large and small are working innovatively to access the many skills that are often missed.
Currently, the disability employment gap sits at around 31% nationally, over the next 5 years the This-Ability Partnership aims to create more opportunities for disabled young people in the Humber Region, by giving businesses the assistance they need, we have a specific aspiration to help small to medium enterprises become Disability Confident.
This event will showcase the work already being done in the region and inspire other businesses to follow, leading the Humber towards a more inclusive, dynamic, productive workforce.

The hugely successful This Ability launch event highlighted how much disabled have to offer your business, and why so many employers, particularly small to medium sized employers are not accessing this talent pool, therefore missing out on great employees.
