View a transcript of this film

The Credit Suisse EMEA Foundation have been supporting our employment services since 2012. 
 
Between 2012 to 2017, we received funding to pilot two personalised employment support services for young disabled people focusing on developing employability skills and supporting those furthest from the job market to search for, secure and stay in work. These services provided us with vital insight and learnings which have formed the blueprint for our employment support offer, including our national Starting Line and Kickstart services for disabled people of working age. 
 
In addition, the Credit Suisse EMEA Foundation co-hosted an information and panel discussion session with more than 50 representatives from across our corporate, trusts, influencing and employment services networks; coming together to discuss best practice in employment support for disabled people and the current employment landscape and barriers that disabled people face to getting, staying and progressing in work. Included on the panel was the Minister of State for Disabled People.

Credit Suisse employees have also shown their support by volunteering for Scope in a variety of ways. For example, through its Global Citizens Program, we received invaluable specialist support in helping us develop our new Data Strategy and many employees participated in job club workshops with disabled people.
