Disability Confident Conference

8 Jan



Opportunity Plus had the pleasure of attending the Disability Confident Conference at Foxes Academy in Minehead last year and were inspired by the enthusiasm, hard work and success stories of the young people who work and train at the academy. We are delighted to pledge our support to the campaign and develop even more work placement opportunities in 2016.

Many organisations from across the South West attended the conference including employers, support organisation and the Minister for Disabled People, Justin Tomlinson, all showing their support for both Foxes Academy and the Disability Confident Campaign.
Foxes Academy is a great organisation focused on equality that inspires young people to gain skills and confidence. To find out more about the fantastic work they do please visit their website –
