In 2016, the Department of Work & Pensions replaced their old Two Ticks Scheme with the Disability Confident Scheme. The Disability Confident team say that the scheme is about ‘creating a movement for change, encouraging employers to think differently about disability and take action to improve how they recruit, retain and develop disabled people’. Organisations that become part of the Disability Confident Scheme help:

  • Change attitudes towards disability.
  • Increase understanding of disability.
  • Help remove barriers to disabled people or those with health issues.
  • Ensure that all people have the same opportunity to develop themselves.

The scheme is set out over three levels: Each level raises the proverbial bar and increases the scope and impact the scheme has on everyone involved. Each level must be completed before moving onto the next one:

  • Level 1: Disability Confident Committed
  • Level 2: Disability Confident Employer
  • Level 3: Disability Confident Leader

At Perito, we really like what the Disability Confident Scheme represents and how it can make a real difference to both employees and especially to employers. The Disability Confident website provides excellent guidance on how to become Disability Confident Committed but the Perito team will be able to help if your organisation does get stuck, free of charge.

If you would like our help, free of charge, to navigate your organisation to becoming Level 1: Disability Confident Committed then please let us know via email on disabilityconfidentscheme@weareperito.com or give us a call.

We help organisations know how easy it can be to create the most amazing inclusive environments.

What our clients say

"As a business owner I am interested in making sure my facilities are as accessible to my clients as possible. I wasn't sure where to start but Perito have been great in making the complex law straightforward and they provided me with a nice report. I was pleased that a lot of the suggestions were really practical and easy to sort out by my regular maintenance team and cost almost nothing to implement. The Perito inspection team were very discreet and courteous. Thanks Perito!" - Ikandu Ltd
"We’d like to thank James and his team for their professional approach, seamless dealings with us and satisfactory outcome for this survey.
The Perito team has added value in ways we hadn’t expected. In that it has enabled us to understand the costs associated with the works which we have and will use to good effect in our future planning and strategy. We are a charity and as such have to manage our funds wisely. Perito’s practical approach and their ability to recommend changes that had little or no cost as well as the larger more costly changes, has meant we are able to improve our Branch within our limited budget. Highly recommend." - Samaritans Plymouth Branch
"Perito Ltd performed an Access Audit for our South Essex Construction Training Academy branch in Basildon. We were really pleased with the report, it focused on what we could achieve by breaking down the actions so we really understood what the tasks were. We also used the report in our new funding model for The Advice Store. It was very useful to have all the information laid out so clearly." - SECTA - Southend on Sea Council
