Whitepaper: Disability is Everyone’s Business
In 2015 the Conservative manifesto set out a target to reduce the disability employment gap by 50%, which has been subsequently modified to a target of
getting one million more disabled people into work by 2027.
This paper considers what the disability employment gap is, why it’s important and
should be addressed, the proposals contained in the National Disability Strategy and what impact the government’s policies on disability and work may have on employers.
