Disability Confident

Synopsis
The provisions of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (DDA) which came into effect in October 2004 have reinforced the need for all organisations, large and small, to ensure that they are meeting their obligations to customers and employees. This film is a benchmark learning and training resource that has been produced with The Employers Forum on Disability and a number of the country’s leading private and public sector organisations. The resource enables organisations to use the DDA as a springboard for meeting: their legal obligations and thus avoiding litigation costs and damage to reputation; the needs of disabled customers; the needs of employees with disabilities.
This is a comprehensive, practical resource which empowers staff at all levels to become comfortable and confident when dealing with disabled customers or colleagues.

The resource features disabled people in a range of typical customer and colleague scenarios, containing a variety of interactive challenges. It has been developed in conjunction with disabled people, many of whom are featured in the resource. They provide invaluable insights into how organisations and their staff can ensure people with disabilities get equal access both as customers and employees.
