Positive About Disabled People

'Positive About Disabled People' is a certificate awarded by Jobcentre Plus which recognises Community Union's commitment to treating all members of society equally.

These commitments are:

  • to interview all disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria for a job vacancy and to consider them on their abilities
  • to ensure there is a mechanism in place to discuss, at any time but at least once a year, with disabled employees, what both parties can do to make sure disabled employees can develop and use their abilities
  • to make every effort when employees become disabled to make sure they stay in employment
  • to take action to ensure that all employees develop the appropriate level of disability awareness needed to make sure these commitments work
  • to review these commitments each year and assess what has been achieved, plan ways to improve on them and let employees and Jobcentre Plus know about progress and future plans



Community is also accredited to the Disability Champions@Work scheme. Communityy has five staff members accredited to support the needs of our disabled members with the workplace and within their union.
