Testimonials

“I would like to thank both you and Mags for delivering an excellent course.  I have learned a lot from the session and will definitely be able to make use of it in my day to day role.” (Quotation from trainee who achieved Disability Positive Accreditation in January 2018)

 

“I must say the presentation was delivered in a most professional way by two people who knew their subject matter inside out and delivered it with passion.  I enjoyed the presentation and I know that we all got a lot from it.” (Quotation from trainee who achieved Disability Positive Accreditation in December 2017)

 

“Employers for Disability NI recently ran a number of engaging training sessions in collaboration with Kremer Consultancy Services, which were very well received by Invest NI staff. The focus on disability awareness provided by Employers for Disability NI gave employees a solid grasp of this important area, building on existing knowledge and ensuring that employees are confident and focused on best practice.”

 

Working with Employers for Disability NI has provided us with a great resource when reviewing our own practices and procedures and helped us to achieve best practice guidelines. They have been great for employment advice and queries and the assistance provided to help us with carrying out some of the work that was required was very beneficial and provided us with great development opportunities. Working with them also allowed Antrim to become a “Disability Positive” employer in recognition of the work that staff are engaged with on behalf of Council.” (Jennifer Buckley, HR Manager, Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council)

 

“I have contacted Gabrielle from Employers for Disability NI on two separate occasions. The most recent time was after suffering a breakdown and the support she provided helped me at one of the worst times in my life. This included her support at a meeting with my employers. She gave me the strength and confidence to discuss and agree a reduction of my hours with my employer. This has meant I have returned to work and been able to re-build my confidence and have the ability to deal with problems face to face when they happen. This has had a very positive effect on my health and I have not had a relapse in the last five months.” (Evelyn Green, disabled employee with a local council)
