Disability Confident is a scheme that is designed to help recruit and retain disabled people, and people with health conditions for their skills and talents and supports employers to make the most of the talents disabled people can bring to the workplace. The scheme aims to aid successful recruitment and retain disabled people and those with health conditions. Developed by employers and disabled people’s representatives to make it rigorous but easily accessible – particularly for smaller businesses.

“It is an important forward – step by the government to officially recognise the skills and abilities of disabled people and people with health conditions within the workplace. Surface Area Dance Theatre is proud to gain the certification of a Disability Confident Employer and will reflect upon guidance offered by the government, to maintain and improve upon best practice”. Nicole Vivien Watson, Director of Surface Area Dance Theatre.
