The Insurance Disability, Ability & Wellbeing Network will be officially launched next week to mark International Day of People With Disabilities.

The group has set out four objectives ahead of the event on the 3 December at the Lloyd’s Old Library.

These are to promote mental health and disability wellbeing, encourage open discussions and provide a support network for mental health and disability within the insurance sector; improve mental health and disability inclusion within the insurance sector; influence and encourage proactive management of personal resilience of people within the insurance sector; and champion best practice across the insurance sector and provide scalable initiatives and information which can be freely accessed.

Writing in Post in September Iowa Morgan, manager of City Claims at AIG and chair of the IDawn said: “Getting the message out to people working within the sector that IDawn exists is a key challenge that we face. We have been fortunate to get the support of publications like yours, but we are always looking for partners to support getting our message out.

“It can be as simple as people sharing our social media posts or making sure that IDawn is listed on the intranets of their employers. In order for us to have a bigger impact we need more people to be aware of what we do.”

The event at The Old Library, Know My Ability – An Evening of Positivity & Learning, features Graeme Whippy MBE, who was a member of the steering committee that formed the governments Disability Confident scheme; Mike Brace CBE, a former Paralympic skier; fashion designer Samanta Bullock; and ex-soldier Paul Findlay.
