New ‘Getting Started’ toolkit designed to help businesses become more disability inclusive


A new set of online resources has launched to help businesses become more disability inclusive.

Created by Business Disability Forum, the ‘Getting Started’ toolkit covers how to meet the needs of disabled employees and customers, and why it is important. 

The ‘Getting started’ toolkit aims to help businesses and organisations to know where to begin when making their policies and practices more disability friendly.

Diane Lightfoot, CEO, Business Disability Forum, said: “We often hear that organisations want to do more to make their workplaces, products and services more accessible and welcoming to disabled colleagues and customers, but simply don’t know how and where to begin.  

“These resources provide practical advice on how to get started on becoming more disability inclusive. Organisations further along on the journey will also find them a useful reminder. After all, there is always more we can all learn when it comes to meeting the needs of disabled employees and customers. We are very grateful to Lloyds Banking Group for sponsoring our work in this area.” 

The toolkit is sponsored by Lloyds Banking Group, a long-standing Partner of Business Disability Forum. 

David Oldfield, CEO Commercial Banking, and Interim Group chief operating officer and group executive sponsor for disability at Lloyds Banking Group, said: “We benefit greatly from the expertise and support of the Business Disability Forum, and we’re delighted we’re able to help other organisations get started on their journey through the sponsorship of the Getting Started Toolkit.”
