CABE set to launch probe into discrimination against disabled

  • Comment

CABE is set to commission an investigation into discrimination against people with disabilities working in architecture.

The research - triggered by 'empirical evidence that there is a real problem' - will investigate the failure of practices to employ and retain disabled people. CABE's director of learning and development, Chris Murray, said there was widespread concern about the low number of disabled students enrolling and the inability of the profession to retain even 'this small number when they qualify'.

He said the research - which will take place in the next 12 months - will produce a statistical picture of the problem and attempt to provide an explanation. 'We simply don't have any figures to be able to work with the profession and higher education to achieve changes, ' said Murray. 'The profession that is failing to design access into buildings is also failing to attract those to whom it matters most.'
