Organisation type: Central Government Agency
To transform society and the lives of disabled people by:
creating equality in employment
facilitating their access to sustainable employment and careers
enabling them to achieve their ambitions and maximise their potential.
Remploy exists to improve the lives of disabled people and those with complex needs through the power of work. We believe that everyone has something to offer. So we work to find their strengths. Once we know their skills, we match them to proper jobs with carefully chosen employers who help them achieve.
An exciting future
On 7 April 2015, 70 years after it was formed, Remploy left government ownership in a joint venture between MAXIMUS, an international company providing health and employment services on three continents, and Remploy’s employees who have a 30% stake in the new business.
Freeing Remploy from government control means we have the ability to expand, move into new markets, borrow to grow and pursue international opportunities MAXIMUS brings commercial knowledge and expertise to the joint venture and works with Remploy to build on its existing success. This opens new opportunities and offers an exciting future. Find out more information on our Employee ownership.
We take the long view
We believe in building careers not simply filling short-term roles. We also know how every disability affects the chance of a job. That’s why we use a number of ways to help people prepare and get into work.
Plus once in a job, we continue to help them with long-term support and advice. We can even help with career guidance if they want to change their role. The result is full, happy independent lives.
We're across the UK
We feel it’s only right that people have simple and easy access to our services. That’s why we invest heavily in 64 branches across Britain. These are always ready to give individual care to those who need it, along with our full range of support and advice.
And we’re proud to say that in the five years from 2010 to 2015 we helped almost 100,000 people get a real job.
Success through partnership
The businesses we work with are key to creating real jobs and helping us achieve our mission. It’s only right that their will to treat everyone as equal means that they can equally expect our full support in return.
We currently work with over 2500 employers – from global corporations to small business owners. These partnerships continue to develop a broader and deeper understanding of disabled people’s needs and allow businesses to enjoy new social and economic value.
