Evenbreak – A gift and a request

As a social enterprise, one of our aims is to promote the business benefits of employing disabled people.

We know that it can sometimes be difficult for you to engage your colleagues in the importance of inclusion, and so we have produced a film to help you.

The film consists of employers telling us how being accessible and inclusive has helped their business, and we also see some of their employees.

A Gift

You are free to use it however you wish – with strategic managers, at staff training, at awareness-raising events – at no cost. We really just want to help you promote the benefits that employing disabled people can bring to a wide range of employers in different sectors and of different sizes.

A Request

We hope you love the work that Evenbreak does as much as we do, and you can help us to build on our growth so far. Following a wonderful Scale Up programme run by the School of Social Entrepreneurs and funded by Lloyds Banking Group,Evenbreak has made it into the five finalists for the Social Entrepreneur of the Year Award.

The winner will be decided by public vote, and will gain £10,000 to spend on growth activities. If we were lucky enough to win we would take on two more disabled staff to help with our marketing activities, directly employing two disabled people and helping hundreds more into work with inclusive employers who will value their skills. We need your vote!

It takes about two seconds to vote.
