"The Specialist Employment Service incorporating Kent Supported Employment are proud to be sponsoring the new 'Valuing Disability in Business Award' with bemix. We are delighted that businesses will be recognised for employing people with an exceptional range of skills and capabilities and hope to encourage many more businesses to access this talent pool of employees."

The award is open to any business, irrespective of size or sector, that can demonstrate commercial success through valuing disabled people who work for, and interact with, the business.
