Rail Diversity Week (September 23rd – 27th) is coming!
Presented by NSAR and SkillsLive.co, Rail Diversity Week brings attention to DWP’s “Disability Confident” Campaign and seeks to connect transport employers and Jobcentres around the country to hundreds of unemployed job seekers through an online intervention programme – within SkillsLive.co
Launched in 2016, “Disability Confident” is a national campaign to support 1 million unemployed disabled individuals into employment by 2020. Currently, seven out of ten individuals within the Jobcentre system, are now classified as disabled. Nearly seven million people of working age within in UK are disabled or have a health condition.
Transport for London, Network Rail, Siemens, East Midlands Trains and Direct Rail Services are just a few of the employer partners who have already pledged their support for Rail Diversity Week 2019
