Positive About Disabled People


Newark and Sherwood Homes have been awarded the use of the Disability Symbol. This has been granted in recognition by the Employment Service to employers who have agreed to take action to meet five commitments regarding the employment, retention, training and career development of disabled employees.

The five commitments that Newark and Sherwood Homes have agreed to follow are:

Commitment 1
To interview all disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria for a job vacancy and consider them on their abilities.

Commitment 2
To ensure there is a mechanism in place to discuss, at any time, but at least once a year, with disabled employees what they can do to make sure they can develop and use their abilities.

Commitment 3
To make every effort when employees become disabled to make sure they stay in employment.

Commitment 4
To take action to ensure that all employees develop the appropriate level of disability awareness needed to make your commitments work.

Commitment 5
Each year, to review the five commitments and what has been achieved, to plan ways to improve on them and let employees and Jobcentre Plus know about progress and future plans.
