We are an inclusive organisation with a culture that values differences and where diversity is fully embraced and respected. We are committed to challenging all forms of discrimination or disadvantage and aim to ensure that no individual or group is directly or indirectly discriminated against for any reason.

Positive about Disabled People Accreditation
Carers Support have gained Positive about Disabled People accreditation and have been given permission by Jobcentre Plus to use the Two Ticks symbol, having made the following 5 commitments:

  • To interview all disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria for a job vacancy and to consider them on their abilities
  • To discuss with disabled employees, at any time but at least once a year, what you can both do to make sure they can develop and use their abilities
  • To make every effort when employees become disabled to make sure they stay in employment
  • To take action to ensure that all employees develop the appropriate level of disability awareness needed to make these commitments work
  • To review these commitments every 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
