YCT has been accredited with Disability Confident Employer status in recognition of our commitment to good practice in employing and retaining disabled people.
Disability Confident is a government scheme which has replaced the Disability ‘Two Ticks’ scheme. It aims to:
- Challenge attitudes towards disability
- Increase understanding of disability
- Remove barriers to disabled people and those with long term health conditions in employment
- Ensure that disabled people have the opportunities to fulfil their potential and realise their aspirations.
Our status as a Disability Confident Employer shows that Yorkshire Children’s Trust has successfully completed a self-assessment ensuring that we are taking all of the required core actions. We must also offer at least one activity outlined by the Disability Confident guidelines to ensure we are getting the right people for our business and at least one activity to keep and develop our workforce.
Yorkshire Children’s Trust already employs a staff member with disabilities and we are happy to make the adjustments required to support their essential role within our organisation. We further welcome and work with volunteers who have various disabilities.
YCT, as a forward thinking charity will always interview a disabled person for any role if they meet the essential job requirements. All of our job and volunteer roles follow equal opportunities and the charity will never discriminate against, race, religion, orientation or disability.
