At Community, we represent thousands of disabled workers across the UK across all industries and sectors, and are committed to driving positive change, improved rights, and recognition for everyone with a disability. Our Equalities team are committed to this cause and fight to ensure that everyone with a disability (whether it is visible or non-visible) and are not held back because of their disability.
Community has a long-standing history of representing the rights of disabled workers, dating back over a century with the first ever trade union to represent people with a disability, The National League of the Blind joining the Community family in 2000.
Even though there has been a lot of progress made in disabled workers rights in the UK, we still have a long way to go to achieve true equality for disabled people, with many disabled workers still facing disability discrimination, bullying and reduced opportunities to this day. This is unacceptable.
That’s why we are dedicated to supporting disabled workers, breaking down barriers, tackling stigmas surrounding non-visible disabilities and working directly with employers to make sure that the workplace is accessible and safe for everyone.
