Chamber of Conscience

What is it?

The Chamber of Conscience is a movement promoting companies to network for a social and environmental cause. The idea behind it stems from the need for companies to help develop the local business community and the people within it.

Our Focus

We are committed to reducing the unemployment rate for those with disabilities, as we believe everyone has a talent and can offer something. We aim to raise awareness about this issue, so that talented individuals who would normally be overlooked, are connected with businesses in order to create a relationship where both parties can mutually benefit. We focus on ability, not disability.

We are also very involved in protecting our environment and take sustainability very seriously. By implementing new projects and utilising existing ones, we can create a better environment for all. We feel that everyone can contribute to the sustainability of our environment and that every action, no matter how big or small, contributes to this.

Outcome

  • Influence recruitment policies of local businesses
  • Increase the amount of disability confident registered companies in the area
  • Have local businesses sign up to the new ‘Ability Recruitment Policy’
  • Positions filled & staff trained

We've been members of the Watford Chamber of Commerce for a number of years now and have found that our membership helps us to engage with the other like-minded businesses, as well as keeping us updated with local matters and plans for Watford and the surrounding area. Chamber events are particularly useful in our drive to be more active in our local business community. The Chamber Team are really friendly and approachable and show a genuine interest in our business.
