Enham Trust obtained Disability Confident Leader status under the Disability Confident scheme in December 2017. An initiative established by the Government in 2013, Disability Confident aims to challenge negative attitudes to disability employment, and promote equal opportunities for all individuals who can work. Achieving Disability Confident Leader status acknowledges our efforts to support people living with a disability to gain employment within the organisation, as well as its ongoing work with businesses to support and employ disabled people.
