Encouraging Disabled Applicants Into The Supported Living Homes Sector

We are thrilled to announce that T.P Properties has retained the ‘Positive about Disability’ Two Ticks award for its excellence in employment in the supported living homes sector.

Job Centre Plus operates this programme on behalf of the Department for Work and Pensions and this is the second consecutive year that the company has received the accreditation in recognition of its commitment to recruitment, training, consultation and disability awareness.

To receive the award, the company had to meet five objectives relating to the employment of disabled people:

  • Interview all applicants with a disability who meet the minimum criteria for a job vacancy and consider them on their abilities
  • Ensure there is a mechanism in place to discuss, at any time, but at least once a year, with disabled employees what can be done to make sure they can develop and use their abilities
  • Make every effort when employees become disabled to make sure they stay in employment
  • Take action to ensure all employees develop the appropriate level of disability awareness needed to make these commitments work
  • Each year, review the five commitments and what has been achieved, plan ways to improve on them and let employees and Jobcentre Plus know about progress and future plans

‚ÄčBarbara Graham, Managing Director of T.P Properties said, 'I am so pleased that we have retained the use of this logo.  It is an expression of who we are.  Our commitment to the creation of a community in which disabled people are full and active participants doesn't just stop at the tenanted front door of a supported living home, it permeates through our whole business. I am proud of our culture, proud of our workforce and proud of our future direction.'
