The Phil & Simon Show
This month, we were lucky enough to have Diane Lightfoot. Chief Executive of the Business Disability Forum on the show. Phil and Simon have been associates, consultants, allies and critical friends of the Forum for 20 years and we mention the organisation often in our shows. It’s unique, representing business and disability voices in one place.Three years ago Diane Lightfoot became the chief executive and we discuss what she sees as the successes and progress made in her time, as well as what still needs to be done.Prior to joining the Forum, Diane was Director of Policy and Communications for United Response, a leading national disability charity and she focused on the organisation’s employment services which focused particularly on this with learning difficulties. Phil and Simon ask Diane why is the group of disabled people so often ignored and how do we get the employment and participation rates up.There’s an error in the show. See if you can spot it and let us know, to win..our praise. Business Disability Forum https://businessdisabilityforum.org.ukUnited Response https://www.unitedresponse.org.uk
