Being a Disability Confident Employer:

“I enjoy working at Fashion Enter because there is never a dull moment. Whenever I need help with anything there is always someone around to help me out,” says Rob. “We could not do without Rob, he is a real asset to the running of the factory,” adds CEO Jenny Holloway.

Katie Farley, fashion reporter, stylist and a regular FashionCapital contributor (pictured right) suffers with Cerebral Palsy, a lifetime physical disability but she does not let this impact her work and passions.

“My journey to reach the top could well be a slow and steady process, but with determination, desire, and maybe a sprinkling of talent, I believe this will be achievable, regardless of any disability. Let’s view disability as an ultimate challenge, never an impossibility.”

Having previously worked alongside Remploy, a company that for 70 years has designed and delivered employment and support services for those with disabilities and health conditions to offer further employability skills, we hope to continue this working relationship and become advocates for the governments Disability Confident campaign.

“People with disabilities have so much to offer!”– Jenny Holloway
