Work and Health Unit

The Work and Health Unit works to improve the health and employment outcomes for disabled people and those with health conditions.

The Work and Health Unit is a cross-government unit, jointly sponsored by the Department for Work and Pensions and the Department of Health and Social Care. It works across government and the wider public sector to develop solutions that benefit disabled people and those who support them.

Following a consultation, the Work and Health Unit published Improving lives: the future of work, health and disability. This paper sets out how the government will make and influence changes across the welfare system, the workplace and health services to see one million more disabled people in work by 2027.
