Disability Confident

We are proud to be recognised as a Disability Confident Employer having signed up to the UK Government’s initiative.

The scheme demonstrates our commitment to challenging attitudes towards physical and learning disabilities by removing barriers and providing people the opportunities to realise their potential.

Paul Richards, CEO, Together Energy said, “We firmly believe in equal opportunities and there is always more businesses could be doing to break down barriers. Recent research highlighted that the lifespan of people with a learning disability is fifteen years less than the population average and that’s unjust and completely unacceptable.”

It is estimated that 1 in 50 people in the UK have a learning disability and over 11 million people have a limiting long term illness, impairment or disability.
