Dyslexia Scotland has welcomed a new organisational member.
Earlycareers.scot, which provides support of early career development for all young people, has become the latest organisation to gain Dyslexia Scotland Organisational Membership in February 2023.
It joins a cohort of businesses eager to demonstrate their commitment to dyslexia inclusion in Scotland’s workplaces.
Dyslexia Scotland Organisational Membership is a key strand of the charity’s strategy for a Dyslexia Friendly Scotland.
The initiative provides a channel for Scottish business to promote dyslexia-friendly practices and provides the charity with a source of sustainable income, helping it fulfil its ambition for Scotland to be a dyslexia-friendly society.
Cathy Magee, chief executive of Dyslexia Scotland, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Early Careers as our latest organisational member. Their goal to ensure all young people are supported to fulfil their career potential is a critical part of our own mission to build a dyslexia-friendly country.”
Aaron Vaughan, managing director at Early Careers Ltd, said: “We know that around one in 10 of the people we work with at earlycareers.scot will be dyslexic and so we are working towards a greater understanding of dyslexia in all parts of our business and service offer. We are proud to be members of Dyslexia Scotland.”
Dyslexia Scotland invites other socially-conscious business leaders who support the charity’s vision for a more inclusive Scotland to apply to become organisational members.
