LOCAL MORAY FIRMS who are taking part in a Disability Confident Scheme designed to help in the recruitment of disabled people are being praised by Moray’s MP.

Douglas Ross has recognised the scheme which is aimed to help disabled people who quite often have skills and talents that are overlooked because of their disabilities.

Mr Ross spoke on the issue at Westminster following which he said: “Being a disability confident business means you are part of a scheme that can bring positive advantages to a company.

“As well as disabled persons gaining from their employment, employers have said they have discovered individuals who brings an extra boost and other capabilities and positive influences to their business who they might not have considered taking on.

“I am delighted that I was able to mention just a few of the local businesses and groups from Moray who are all signed-up to the scheme during the debate. These include Jaycees Computers, Macleans Highland Bakery, ENABLE, Baxters and Walkers Shortbread.

“I would urge more local businesses to get involved in the scheme, because, as the scheme says: Being Disability Confident could help you discover someone your business just can’t do without.”
