Business disability forum (BDF)
The BMA is a member of the Business Disability Forum, a not-for-profit member organisation dedicated to the creation of disability-smart organisations.
Disability-smart organisations make it both easier and more rewarding to employ and work with people with disabilities by providing practical advice, training and facilitating networking opportunities. Being a part of this Forum means that we can be at the forefront of disability best practice.
