Belfast Trust awarded Employers for Disability NI Member Accreditation

26/09/2012

The Trust has been recognised as an Employer for Disability NI Member of Excellence.

Following on from its success at being shortlisted for the Irish News Workplace and Employment Awards - Disability Best Practice Employer Award, the Trust has now been recognised as an Employer for Disability NI Member of Excellence, one of only four organisations locally who achieved this level.

The Trust scored more than 90% on the Employers for Disability Member Audit to self-evaluate progress in implementing good disability practice.

This award recognises the commitment demonstrated by Belfast Trust in implementing an array of practical measures to attract and retain employees and service users with disabilities.

The Trust profiled its Disability Best Practice at a Showcasing Event hosted by Employers for Disability, Equality Commission NI and the Department of Education and Learning on 19 September 2012.
