Supporting disabled people into employment and to thrive in the workplace
What can we do to help more disabled people into employment and then thrive once they are in the workplace? Around 1 in 5 working age adults in the UK are disabled. Despite this large and growing number, disabled people are almost twice as likely to be unemployed as non-disabled people, and 3 times as likely to be economically inactive.

London LSIP: How can London lead a transferable skills revolution?
