Industry experts offer free online advice to support disabled staff

FREE specialist online teach-ins for employers wanting to better support disabled staff in their roles are being run by business leaders. The 30 minute webinars, supported by Microsoft, are being led by industry experts from companies that have been awarded Disability Confident Leader status and will run through February, March and April 2021. They cover key issues including; mental health and well being, remote working and virtual hiring.

Minister for Disabled People Justin Tomlinson said:- "Our focus is on protecting, supporting and creating jobs for people from all backgrounds through our ₤30bn Plan for Jobs, and specialist programmes like Access to Work. We understand employers are committed to having inclusive workplaces and supporting disabled people to thrive, but often aren't sure where to start or how to improve. Our Disability Confident sessions will provide guidance and insight on how they can ensure their recruitment practice is accessible as well as how to support employees with a disability or health condition."

All employers are welcome to attend the webinars, which are designed to provide guidance and advice on supporting disabled people in the workplace, including in a virtual setting, through the Pandemic and when returning to the office. Professor Amanda Kirby, CEO of Do-It Solutions, hosts the sessions and delivers advice on assistive technologies. Professor Amanda Kirby said:- "The webinars have been extremely successful in providing employers with practical strategies to support the recruitment and retention of disabled people. Please register to save your place."

Disability Confident is a Government scheme to support and encourage employers to have diverse and inclusive workplaces. For information on the webinars and how to register, visit:- DoItProfiler.com/DWP-Webinars.
 


Liverpool to mark 1 year since the 1st Covid lockdown

ON Tuesday, 23 March 2021, the City will stage an emotive event; Liverpool Together:- exactly 1 year on since the start of the 1st lockdown in England. Working in partnership with BBC Radio Merseyside, Liverpool City Council's award winning Culture Liverpool team is curating the event which will reflect on 2020, as well as looking to the future, celebrating the resilience and solidarity of the City. Streamed and broadcast online, poetry, readings, films and 1st person accounts will reflect on those who lost their lives to Covid19, highlight the challenges faced by every community during the Pandemic and shine a light on the incredible spirit people have shown in dealing with this unprecedented adversity. Full details of the event, and others taking place across the Liverpool City Region, will be announced in the coming weeks.

Acting Mayor of Liverpool, Councillor Wendy Simon, said:- "This past year has been one of extraordinary loss and change. Every single person in the City, and in the world, has been impacted by the Pandemic. The 23 March 2021 is such a pivotal milestone, we want to host an event which recognises just how hard life has been over the past 12 months, whilst also highlighting some of the incredible things which people from across our city have done. It's a moment for us all, to not only come together to reflect, but also to look forward to our next, shared chapter. We can build back better; and fairer; this city is the ultimate comeback kid and I have no doubt that brighter times are ahead."

BBC Radio Merseyside's Managing Editor, Andrew Bowman, said:- "We're proud to be working with Liverpool City Council so that our listeners across Merseyside and beyond will be able to listen to this special programme. It's been a year like no other, we've followed the Covid story on the radio but also had the most inspirational stories about how our communities have pulled together to help people through this awful time. Liverpool Together is a chance for the whole City to remember and to look forward."
