Are you a London-based employer? Looking for expert advice and free training on Inclusion? 

Are you a disabled person working or looking for work in Tower Hamlets? Want to make your voice heard on Employment issues?  

We want to hear from you!  

‘THEN and NOW’ inclusive employment project empowers organisations to confidently recruit, employ and retain disabled staff with the minimum of cost, time or fuss. The project also aims to better support local disabled people into work by addressing the barriers and promoting positive change.   

The project is made up of two groups who work together to improve inclusion in employment across the borough:  

Employers – Business-to-business support network of local employers.   

Employees/Job seekers – Currently employed disabled people and aspiring disabled employees.  


Who are we? 

A partnership of four specialist organisations:  

  • Realis the disability organisation in Tower Hamlets. We actively employ disabled people and are expert at doing so. We know about the challenges of recruitment in our borough. We are leading on this unique project.

  • Evenbreakis a social enterprise that connects UK employers with disabled candidates and provides expert training on Inclusion.
