MidlandsAbility is a cross-organisational forum which brings companies and other organisations together to talk about the important issues surrounding disability and long term health problems in the workplace.
The network’s aim is to help employers to continue to improve their policy and procedures when it comes to recruiting and retaining staff with a disability or long term health problem, and inspiring others to start their disability confident journey.
The real benefit of the network is that it is led by employees, who have real jobs. They understand the opportunities and constraints to deliver change. The network has a steering group led by employees from KPMG, Gowling WLG, Shakespeare Martineau, Lloyds Bank, enei and Balfour Beatty Vinci, which meet to organise events and members meetings. Members meetings are arranged every two to three months and will normally have a speaker and give members an opportunity to share best practice.
