Who Am I? 

My name is Frank Gilbert. I am a Workplace Disability Assessor, trainer, consultant and adviser. I have conducted more than 3,000 assessments since 2007 for specific learning difficulties (e.g. dyslexia, ASD, ADHD), visual impairments, hearing impairments, dexterity issues (e.g. arthritis, RSI etc) and other physical disabilities (e.g. back injuries, MS, cerebral palsy, strokes, etc),

I also train assessors, deliver webinars and advise employers.

News: I am working on a new service which will enable your organisation to learn The Secrets of Enabling Your Disabled Colleagues. If this may interest you, contact me via my LinkedIn page to register your interest. Add me, message me and I will answer.

Here's what others have said about me:

"I so enjoyed the course and found it really stimulating and informative...  pitched at just the right level with clear guidance of the technical aspect – that I could understand!! So thank you again Frank for all the effort you put into it and especially for sharing your astounding knowledge so freely."

"Really impressed. Came away feeling jubilant, Frank was outstanding. Emotional, didn't realise there was so much that could help and so pleased that somebody cared.  The Assessor really cared about what he was talking about and doing. It really made a difference. I couldn't have asked for anything more. There is nothing bad I could say. It has given me hope" 

"She stated he was brilliant.  She found him to be patient and that he fully explained the process, going at her speed.  She said he made her feel comfortable and at ease with the process."

"Many thanks for the webinar this morning – it was simple and practical but hugely inclusive"

"Thank you very much for your advice and encouragement. I can't tell you how useful I found our meeting."

"Nice detailed report, really well written and very, very clear indeed."

"Thank you.  As always you’ve been a great help and advice giver. You are a marvel."

"I just wanted to thank you very much for yesterday’s training session... It was a brilliant session and as always you present the information in a very clear and easy way to understand"


 

 I originally created this web page to help people to find Access to Work (see below), who may have assumed that it would be at www.accesstowork.co.uk. The number of hits this little quick-and-dirty web page gets shows me that it was worth doing.

 Access to Work is a UK government scheme that can help you if your health or disability (including dyslexia) affects the way you do your job. It can offer you and your employer advice and support with extra costs which may arise because of your needs. It is also available to the self-employed.

My experience is that they are generally helpful and make it easy to check your eligibility to apply. 

I am sorry but as I have been swamped with junk emails, I am no longer accepting email via this web page. If you need work-related support for your disability, please contact Access to Work at the link above.
