There are more than eleven million disabled people in Great Britain, of whom nearly six million are of working age. By hiring and supporting disabled apprentices, employers find that they are better able to extend the pool of high-quality applicants available to them; engage with the widest possible consumer base; and have a workforce that reflects the diverse range of customers they serve - www.employer-toolkit.org.uk/why-hire
There is also a special toolkit designed for U.K. employers that want to develop a more inclusive and accessible apprenticeship offer. It provides practical information, sources of support and inspirational case studies of employers who have benefited from hiring and supporting disabled apprentices - www.employer-toolkit.org.uk

London Apprenticeship Project
In the past The London Apprenticeship Project - (now closed) - aimed to promote more inclusive apprenticeships for disabled people living or working in London. The pilot was funded by Trust for London and lead by Disability Rights UK. Our aim was to engage with London based employers to demonstrate that access to apprenticeships for disabled applicants can be significantly improved with the relevant guidance and support.
