With over 11 million disabled people in the UK, we can help you become better at doing business with, employing and retaining disabled people in order to realise the many business benefits that come with being disability-smart.

Business Disability Forum’s Partner Group is made up of organisations from the private and public sectors and represents a variety of industries; from investment banks to broadcasters, to government agencies and supermarkets. Our Partners are vital to ensuring employers and service providers forge productive relationships with disabled and non-disabled stakeholders.

Being a Partner of BDF highlights your commitment to becoming a disability-smart business and helps us to develop and share emerging best practice.

As a Partner, your organisation will become part of the UK's foremost thought leadership group on disability as it affects business. The Partner group provides opportunities to come together to discuss and shape know-how that pushes the private and public sectors to address disability as a business priority.

Our Partners have contributed to the creation of cutting edge enabling products and initiatives such as the Technology Taskforce, the Accessible Technology Charter and the world-leading Disability Standard.
