Disability Confident

Introduction

Pembrokeshire County Council (PCC) is committed to achieving a diverse and dynamic working environment, harnessing individual talents and skills. By embarking on the Disability Confident journey, we aim to maximise our inclusive working environment and reap the rewards that this approach can bring.

 

Scheme Aims

Through Disability Confident, thousands of employers are:

  • challenging attitudes towards disability
  • increasing understanding of disability
  • removing barriers to disabled people and those with long-term health conditions
  • ensuring that disabled people have the opportunities to fulfil their potential and realise their aspirations
