Diversity & Ability Ltd
ICA19 Shortlisted Nominee.
Best Diversity Resource/Initiative Award
Diversity and Ability (D&A) is an award-winning disabled-led social enterprise, working to empower ‘disabled’ and neurodiverse individuals to reach their potential; in their places of study, their workplace and in wider contexts. D&A supports individuals and employers strategically and practically; to embrace and benefit from the diverse talents that ‘disabled’ people bring to their organisations and within society. D&A provides excellent free resources which can be shared by all. With cost being a barrier to the realities of inclusion, keeping the resources free makes making life-changing differences and are used by people tackling socio-economic homelessness, such as CRISIS London, St Mungos and the YMCA. They have also been used to support people who struggle to fill out Universal Credit forms, as the resources offer access to free voice input or text to speech software, as well as anxiety management support.
