Includability is an all inclusive platform for employers that want to engage, collaborate and build a community of authentically inclusive organisations, aiming for a positive change in the workplace.

A platform for employers that want to engage, collaborate and build a community of authentically inclusive members. Includability aims to provide inspiration and action for positive change in the workplace.

Aims

Includability aims to be the number one job platform of choice for employers and job seekers and to positively contribute towards a society that is free from discrimination, through clear communication, total collaboration and decisive action. To provide a platform for employers with a commitment to treating people fairly and to offer job seekers a fully accessible and equitable application process.

From Sign Solutions

Sign Solutions are excited about joining Includability as an official partner, and helping companies tap into a larger pool of talent.

Through our specialism of support and innovative interpretation, translation and training, we enable Deaf and hearing people to communicate, and along with Includability we will support organisations and Deaf people to ensure they do not encounter barriers and have equal opportunities within the workplace.

Includability for us is a very action led approach to ensuring job applicants with a disability can find responsible employers, looking to enhance and grow their diverse talent pool. The Pan disability job board and the process organisations go through to advertise their roles will ensure that only organisations that are serious about equal opportunities, will be able to advertise.

We are excited to see the difference we can make together with the other partners!

We Support Deaf Awareness

“My vision is that I can walk in a shopping centre, into a building reception, or into the offices of an organisation and I see small cards like the one in the photo.”

Sign Solutions is delighted to be partnering with #WeSupportDeafAwareness.

Sign Solutions provide on demand and around the clock interpreting, training and translation services nationwide, enabling Deaf people to communicate more effectively and gain equal access to information, products, services, education and work.

Working together with #WeSupportDeafAwareness both sharing in the joint mission to make a more inclusive society and encourage organisations to engage with the Deaf community by supporting them on their journey to making their services accessible.

Simon states; “My vision is that I can walk in a shopping centre, into a building reception, or into the offices of an organisation and I see small cards like the one in the photo.

This tells me that the employees in that organisation understand what it is like to be deaf. They’ve developed empathy skills to learn what a deaf person needs.

They understand the frustration from being unable to lipread because of masks. They’ve learned tips to help them communicate more effectively with someone who is deaf.

UKCoD is the umbrella body for organisations working with deaf people in the UK. Our mission is to assist organisations and the sector as a whole to maximise the positive impact they have for deaf people.

UKCoD’s Objectives
