Flick Drummond hosted a Disability Confident Event on Friday 9th September 2016 supported by Penny Mordaunt, to encourage employers to understand the business benefits of employing disabled jobseekers.

Exhibitors and speakers included local employers, role models and employees who showcased how people with a disability can make a major contribution to local business success and challenge negative attitudes to disability employment.

"Disabled people make up almost 20% of the working age population, many being highly qualified individuals. But sometimes employers can be reluctant to employ them, missing out on a valuable pool of potential and skills. At the Disability Confident event, we showed how much they have to offer your business", says Flick
