Disabled people and employment : A review of research and development work Paperback / softback


Disabled people and employment is a review of research and development initiatives intended to help disabled people get or stay in work, which takes the views of disabled people themselves as a yardstick by which to assess good practice.

Drawing on broad-based consultation, it pinpoints gaps in existing research, and highlights the varying requirements of disabled people, employers and service providers as users of research.

It also identifies a need for the wide variety of development initiatives which exist to be more effectively targeted, more systematically evaluated, and brought to the attention of a much wider audience. The report is divided into three main parts. The first part explains why the review was carried out and what it covers; the second part considers research to date and existing research and development initiatives; and the final part draws together the themes and evaluates the prospects for future research and development in the areas identified as a priority by disabled people themselves. This report is essential reading for employers, policy makers, service providers, and everyone concerned with getting more disabled people into work.
