Disability Rights UK are urging the Government to rethink its support programmes aimed at helping disabled people find paid work, following a recent survey where it found “63% of those surveyed said the government support they received did not help them get a job”.
Moreover the research found that “more than 500 disabled people in August, found a mismatch between the support provided and the help disabled job hunters wanted. Overall, 60% of respondents said they would like individualised employment plans, but just 36% of those surveyed had one.”
Liz Sayce, the Chief Executive of Disability Rights UK said “The Work Programme is a non-work programme – at best it is heading for an 88% failure rate with people on out of work disability benefits”.
