Our Partners

We are funded entirely on membership fees and sponsorship from our partners, like-minded organisations who want to join our story.

Our Partners support the "third phase of change" for disabled employees and help us to create core 'change products' that help individuals and their employers to build disability confidence from the inside out. Each relationship is bespoke, and we tailor the support from our partners in ways that meet our joint strategic objectives.

Equal Approach

“Equal Approach’s mission is to promote diverse talent in the workplace, and our sponsorship of the PurpleSpace Bursary Scheme is an example of that in action. To create a truly inclusive culture, employers need to do things differently – and not just talk about making change, but actually take action. One way employers can achieve this, is to create strong networks, such as this one, among people who are empowered to make a real lasting difference for disabled staff.”
Dawn Milman-Hurst, CEO, Equal Approach
