Network of Workers (NOW)

We understand that finding a job as a disabled person can be difficult. We also know that communicating your needs to your employer isn’t always easy. We want to help change this in Tower Hamlets but to do this, we need your help… 

The Network of Workers (NOW) is your chance to make your voice heard and influence employers. Together, we will work to change their employment practices to improve the level of accessibility at work or to improve your chances of gaining employment. The network is made up of a group of disabled employees, volunteers, students and job seekers in Tower Hamlets.   

NOW members have a real say in how we train, guide and influence employers to improve things for disabled applicants and staff. You will also have the chance to take your employment and recruitment concerns directly to employers to ensure they are addressed. NOW members will also receive helpful information about disability employment rights and tips about where to go to get help.
