This month is our Physical Disabilities Month. It’s an opportunity to consider and reflect on the current situation for the 13.9 million disabled people in the UK. According to recent data that includes 19% of working age adults and 45% of pension age adults. That breaks down to more than 3.7 million disabled people in work.

And like any employee these staff members come with their own skills, qualities and expectations. But the playing field is far from level. Recent data suggests persons with disabilities are over twice as likely to be unemployed as non-disabled people. Income inequality is also an issue.  Around 28% of working age disabled people live in poverty (28%), that’s higher than the same figure for working age non-disabled people (18%). We’re advocating for the right support for employees across the workplace spectrum, search our database for available jobs now.
