Be Empowered is an independent organisation that was set up with a mission to support disabled people to achieve their aspirations at work.

We provide a personalised service of work related advice and support to disabled people in Bristol and South Gloucestershire. We also work collaboratively with employers to provide advice on how best to enable their disabled staff to achieve their potential and thrive in the workplace.

Our team members have worked for many years in the disability employment sector, including at the DWP and at Remploy. From our experience we recognised the need for a specialised service centred around each individual’s unique needs and from this Be Empowered was born. We take a flexible, creative approach and focus on finding solutions that enable people to not only make the transition into employment but also to retain their jobs and progress in their careers.

As a disabled-led organisation, we understand the importance of lived experience and many of our team were drawn to this work from a desire to share their knowledge and unique insight as disabled people themselves.

In addition to our core team we draw on the skills of a range of experienced professionals in the fields of mental health, occupational therapy and educational psychology.
