Newsroom Special - #WorkWithMe Pledge
Friday, May 10th, 2019 - 6 minutes
Disabled people may face discrimination daily, but it is perhaps most damaging in the workplace. Despite there being one million disabled people in the UK able and willing to work, it seems outdated attitudes on disability are affecting their employment opportunities. New YouGov research commissioned by Virgin Media and the charity Scope – released as they launch the #WorkWithMe Pledge – highlights the workplace is just as stacked against disabled people as it was over a decade ago. To find out more about the pledge we were joined by Mark Hodgkinson, Chief Executive at Scope, and Jeff Dodds, Managing Director at Virgin Media.
