Camden Ability – Update

19th March 2019 / Posted by CRP Team

CRP’s CamdenAbility project works with a network of local employers to improve disability standards and create opportunities for Camden residents with disabilities and long-term health conditions. The project is funded by Camden Council and delivered in partnership with Business Disability Forum.

CamdenAbility is working with over 30 cross sector organisations, including local government, education, media and art, science and research, hospitality and a number of disability charities based in and around Camden.

Since launching in February 2017, CamdenAbility has supported our members to create, recruit, and sustain local disabled talent.

Organisations such as Caterlink, Apleona, The Francis Crick Institute, The Alan Turing Institute and The Camden Society have all successfully recruited candidates through the project.

We have also created numerous unpaid opportunities to support our candidates to gain experience, improve their skills and grow in confidence to progress towards employment.

Camden Council, Mott Macdonald, UCL, Waitrose, Mind and The Francis Crick institute and are just some of our members working with the project to create work experience opportunities.

Over the next few months, CamdenAbility will continue to create fantastic opportunities for our candidates.  Some of these will include working with Tottenham Hotspurs Foundation to recruit disabled candidates for roles at their new stadium, construction site tours with Laing O’Rourke, a summer internship at the Wellcome Trust, more work experience placements at UCL and Camden Council and interview training with Matrix SCM.
