Meet Claire! She has been working at Orpheus for 4 years, first as a Catering assistant in the canteen and now Life Skills Kitchen Assistant. Claire started as a student here, and as we have always strived for Disability Confidence we were happy to welcome her to the staff team once she graduated.

When talking to Claire about her time as an employee with us, she told us that “I have grown in confidence since I became a staff member and feel I can speak up, I’ve always felt welcomed. I love my job in the life skills kitchen and like the independence I have to get on with my day”.

We are proud to be a Disability Confident Employer, and think it’s so beneficial for more employers to follow suit. Not only does it diversify a workforce, but it gives disabled people an equal opportunity to gain vital workplace skills, achieve their goals, and feel welcome.
