What we do
Ability Promotions create two magazines; Living with Disability and Employmentability.
Employmentability aims to encourage employers to have a more inclusive and diverse workforce and incentivises those who feel discriminated against to seek employment. Studies have found that a business with a diverse workforce will outperform its rivals in both productivity and profit.
Living with Disability informs disabled people, their families and friends on how to access available products and opportunities. Living with Disability illustrates this with a number of personal case histories illustrating how disabled individuals have maximised opportunities open to them to lead full and rewarding lives.

St Paul's will be hosting Disabled Access Day on 10 March 2018
There will be special tours and events especially designed to put disabled people right at the heart of Cathedral life. There will be free entry all day for disabled people and their friend, helper or carer.
Designed especially for disabled adults and children, visitors can enjoy a full programme of tours, talks and workshops. Multimedia guides that have British Sign Language, subtitles, audio described and family tours will also be available, as they always are. The North Transept ramped entrance will be open all day.
Described TouchTours are also available by our Cathedral Guides and these should be booked in advance (more details below). BSL interpreted tours are also available upon request.
For the second year, the Cathedral will feature a special 8.30am early opening for people who would appreciate a quieter time.
All visitors are also invited to take part in the Cathedral’s daily cycle of worship, with a BSL signed Eucharist service at 12.30pm and Choral Evensong sung by the full Cathedral Choir at 5pm.
Whilst the next national Disabled Access Day is not until 2019, St Paul's wanted to build on the momentum generated in the last few years and the enthusiasm of staff and volunteers to continue this as an annual Cathedral event.
