The Disability Advice Project (DAP) has received the Public Health Wales Bronze Workplace Health Award, after being recognised for its commitment to supporting the wellbeing of its team.
The charity has been highly commended for its work supporting employees and volunteers with disabilities. The award praises DAP for investing time and resources into productivity and health policies.
Jayne Salkeld, Joint Project Manager, Disability Advice Project said: “We are delighted to be recognised for this award. We invest in our team and support them to meet their goals, while maintaining a healthy work-life balance. With our flexible working policy, employees are trusted to fulfil their work and can leave early or start late when they need to.
“Many of us are carers or have disabilities so we are close to the work and have a huge amount of empathy for the people we serve. People often start as clients who need advice, and feel so supported and welcome, they stay and become part of our team. By helping to make a difference to other people’s lives we have lots of job satisfaction and this is why DAP is a wonderful place to work.”
