NHS Employers and NHS England have launched a pledge for organisations that support the employment of people with learning disabilities in the NHS.
Organisations can progress through the pledge steps, starting with showing their commitment, right through to being a successful employer of people with learning disabilities.
The new pledge programme
is the latest resource to be launched as part of the commitment to support the employment of more people with learning disabilities in NHS organisations.
You can get involved whether you are already successfully supporting people with learning disabilities in employment or if you'd like to express your commitment in being part of the programme. Once you've made the pledge, organisations are encouraged to share the news by joining the #diverseNHS conversation on Twitter.
