The Disability Confident Scheme
In 2016 the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) quietly relaunched Disability Confident, an initiative originally launched in 2013 by David Cameron, as a replacement for the Two Ticks positive action scheme.
The Disability Confident scheme aims to help employers make the most of the opportunities provided by employing disabled people. It is voluntary and has been developed by employers and disabled people’s representatives.
The Disability Confident scheme has 3 levels that have been designed to support you on your Disability Confident journey. You must complete each level before moving on to the next.
Level 1: Disability Confident committed employer
Level 2: Disability Confident employer
Level 3: Disability Confident leader

You can use the disability confident symbol on adverts to show that you encourage applications from disabled people.
