Discrimination

As a person who acquired soggy loss in my late twenties I have found getting into employment or education hard work.

But, since stepping out and becoming self employed I’ve been able to grown and be myself. However, I’m still facing victimisation through the Department for Work and Pensions through its Access to Work Scheme and the Disability Confident Scheme. These are not working across the board and there are pockets of good practice and these need to be shared.

We need change, awareness, campaigning. Disabled people should be valued in society. Any managers or HR staff reading this – open your eyes and take a chance.
