I Can Make It

“I Can Make It” is a three year campaign led by Disability Rights UK. Its aim is to create new job opportunities for young disabled people using the Social Value Act as its main driver.  

On Tuesday 20th March, the “I Can Make It” team from Disability Rights UK held a successful pledge event at the Financial Times head office in London, to mark the end of the first phase of the campaign. The aim of the event was to encourage local authorities and businesses to pledge jobs for young disable people, primarily through the use of the Social Value Act, and to encourage more political support for the campaign. Various interactive presentations and workshops from experts in their field provided delegates with the knowledge and guidance they need to deliver on their pledges. Delegates were also provided with a delegates’ pack, to help them beyond the event.
