Consultation description

This consultation seeks views on how we can halve the disability employment gap. Despite the current record-breaking labour market, 4.6 million disabled people and people with long-term health conditions are out of work. Less than half (48%) of disabled people are in employment, compared to 80% of the non-disabled population.

Topics in this consultation include the role of employers and work coaches, improvements to the welfare system, investing in innovative services, occupational health support and changing the culture around work and health.

The Department for Work and Pensions and the Department of Health are keen to hear views from all interested parties, especially disabled people and disability organisations.
