Andrew Bridgen questions Government on raising awareness of support for employers employing people with disabilities

20th February 2017

Andrew Bridgen questions the Government about efforts to raise awareness of the Access to Work programme and the support available for employers to encourage them to employee people with disabilities.

12. What are the Government doing to raise awareness of the Access to Work programme and the support it can offer to employers who want to make reasonable adjustments for employees with disabilities? [908768]

 

The Access to Work programme is popular, and is just one of the Government’s schemes to provide support and financial assistance to employers. One way in which we are publicising that is through the Disability Confident scheme, which we relaunched last autumn. Around 4,000 organisations have now signed up to it, and it is one way of ensuring that employers really do understand the support that is there for them, as well as the huge talent and insight that this group of people can bring to their workforce.
