Positive about disabled people


North Wales Housing hold the Jobcentreplus “two ticks” Positive about disabled people symbol. This means we have been recognised as a positive place to work for disabled people, and have made commitments to employ, retain and develop people with disabilities.

The five commitments are to:

  • Interview all disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria for a job vacancy and to consider them on their abilities
  • Discuss with disabled employees, at any time but at least once a year, what both parties can do to make sure disabled employees can develop and use their abilities
  • Make every effort when employees become disabled to make sure they stay in employment
  • Take action to ensure that all employees develop the appropriate level of disability awareness needed to make these commitments work
  • Review these commitments each year and assess what has been achieved, plan ways to improve on them and let employees and Jobcentre Plus know about progress and future plans
