Persons with disabilities can be productive in performing most jobs when given the necessary accomodation and right environment. . . . . .  Reposted from @creamcrackeredblog (@get_regrann) -  Just a quick FYI, for people who like to question why many disabled people can’t just “go out and get a job”. The odds are stacked against disabled and chronically ill people in the job market from the very start. That’s before we even consider accessible work spaces... ๐Ÿ˜ . Have any of you ever experienced discrimination in the workplace due to your disability or health condition? I’d be interested to hear about it in the comments, if you are comfortable sharing ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ . Thank you to the superb @wheely_good_time for raising awareness of important issues like this โค๏ธ. . . . . . . #myalgicencephalomyelitis #meawareness #mecfs #disabledlife #disabilityawareness #accessibility #discrimination #disabledrights #chronicillness #chronicpain #invisibledisability #invisibleillness #work #accesstowork - #regrann

It's great to see the discussion around disability and work on #channel5news and how attitudes need to change. However, you have shown a perfect example of something not being fully accessible - the table is too high for wheelchair users; what happens when you employ a wheelchair user...OR dont you? #channel5 #disability #work #news #disabledworkers #accesstowork #attitudes #greatexample #disabilityadvocate

๐ŸŽ “Who am I, now that I’m no longer a teacher?” ๐ŸŽ  I wrote an article for the @meassociation about how my illness and the subsequent the loss of my teaching career has affected my sense of identity, and how I’m learning to live with it.

5 years ago today I got my F I R S T  JOB!  My number one piece of advice to any disabled job seekers out there: persist, persist, PERSIST! .  This was after going to 43 interviews and trying to get a job for nearly 3 years. I just remember I couldn’t even process that it was actually a yes. .  The issue of employment and disability always fascinates and frustrates me. Research shows those with disabilities are less likely to gain employment as others of working age (Disability Rights, 2019). Unemployment rates are lower for those with disabilities compared to the general population (9.1% versus 3.6%, Scope, 2018). .  The three most common barriers reported by disabled people are: 1) challenges with transport 2) lack of job opportunities and 3) Employer attitudes (DNDP Scotland, 2018). .  Often those with disabilities worry that disclosing their disability might open them up to discrimination. However, the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) makes this unlawful. This act states that employers must consider making “reasonable adjustments” to support those with disabilities at work (GOV.UK, 2018). .  The most common incentives that support those with disabilities to work include: employer incentives, support with their health, phases work hours/days and duties etc. .  Interestingly, studies show that employing those with disabilities is highly cost effective as they maintain loyal employment and take fewer sick days (Independent, 2018). .  So I’ll say it again, persist, persist persist ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ . .

As a qualified Chef, Ciaran was optimistic about securing employment when he moved to Northern Ireland. Ciaran is deaf and uses Irish Sign Language. He heard about the Action on Hearing Loss Specialist Employment Programme and self-referred to seek support with applying for work.โ € โ € Ciaran's Employment Advisor supported him to update his CV, and provided interview practice when he was shortlisted for a job. Ciaran was successful and is now working in a full time position as Chef in two kitchens in a popular family run hotel.โ € โ € He said: “Getting support from the Specialist Employment Programme gave me the confidence to apply for and secure a job in my local area, whilst learning about other government support available.”โ € โ € The Specialist Employment Programme provides support  to people who are deaf, have tinnitus or hearing loss to access jobs, work placements, voluntary work and training. Read Ciaran's story and find out how to access support here: https://buff.ly/2MNsM71โ € โ € The Programme is part funded through the Northern Ireland European Social Fund Programme 2014 - 2020 and the Department for Economy. Match funded by Department for Communities.โ € โ € #deafness #tinnitus #hearingloss #isl #irishsignlanguage #accesstowork #disabilityemployment #empowerment #employmentsupport

Happy to join @versusarthritis in calling for better support to keep people with arthritis in work.  Let me know if you’d like a copy of their new report.  There’s a higher prevalence of back pain and osteoarthritis of the hip and knee in the constituency than the UK as a whole - 1 in 5 have osteoarthritis of the knee.  #versusarthritis #arthritis #iamversusarthritis #osteoarthritis #accesstowork

Earlier this week I joined @actiononhearingloss and other supporters; Donna, Beth and Chris and we met Justin Tomlinson MP – the Minister for Disabled People to tell him our experiences being deaf in the workplace, the challenges we face from the application and interview process through to daily tasks in our working life. • We spoke about the changes we’d like to see from the Government to create a hub of useful information for employers to ensure they can best provide for their disabled employees, recognising their talent and helping to minimise the barriers, as well as helping to make the Access to Work process easier and more recognised. I look forward to seeing the changes that they will implement to help make workplaces more inclusive and accessible! • #workingforchange #actiononhearingloss #campaigns #minister #government #change #workplace #inclusion #access #deaf #hearingloss #hardofhearing #deafness #accessibility #accesstowork #employers
#deaf adults - we'd love your help! We want to show deaf young people that with a few simple adjustments, and tech, they can do jobs they assumed they couldn't because of their #deafness. We want them to be able to picture themselves in the job of their dreams and know what support they'll need. If you'd be happy to share what support you use at work we'd love to hear from you. Please comment here or email us at technology@ndcs.org.uk. #deaftalent #deafcan #accesstowork #equality #accessibility #hearingloss
