Disability Confident is a government scheme designed to encourage employers to recruit and retain disabled people and those with health conditions. It replaced the previous Two Ticks Positive About Disabled People scheme.
The scheme is voluntary and has been developed by employers and disabled people’s representatives. The Disability Confident scheme has three levels that have been designed to support organisations:
- Level 1: Disability Confident Committed
- Level 2: Disability Confident Employer
- Level 3: Disability Confident Leader.
The scheme aims to help employers make the most of the opportunities provided by employing disabled people.
