Inclusion for all is part of the culture at DPD. We commit to including everyone primarily through two programmes, Inspire and by being a Disability Confident Employer. We are delighted to now join other organisations committing to Valuable 500.
DPD’s Inspire aims to include people with special needs and learning difficulties by offering opportunities of work experience, internships, apprenticeships and employment.
We link with local colleges to encourage young people to join the Inspire programme with the goal of gaining full time employment with DPD.
DPD has achieved stage two of being a Disability Confident Employer. This means we actively seek to recruit disabled people and will always offer interviews to those who meet the minimum role requirements.
DPD’s Senior Management Team commits to reviewing the progress of these and other inclusion initiatives at our monthly board meeting.
