British Sign Language – Getting in, staying in and getting on: Disability employment support fit for the future (YouTube video)

Since May 2010, the Government has set out an ambitious programme of employment support to ensure that people disadvantaged in the labour market will get the help they need to find and keep jobs.

In December 2010, the Secretary of State asked Liz Sayce, the Chief Executive of RADAR, the UK’s largest disability campaigning organisation, to conduct an independent review of the Government’s specialist disability employment programmes. An aim of the review was to examine how more disabled people could be supported into work within the available funding. The findings of that review were published on 9 June 2011 in ‘Getting in, staying in and getting on’.

On 11 July 2011, the Government published its response to Liz Sayce’s independent review of specialist disability employment programmes ‘Getting in, staying in, getting on’ and a consultation on the recommendations.

On 7 March 2012, the Government published ‘Disability Employment Support: Fulfilling Potential’ which sets out the strategy for specialist disability employment programmes and includes a summary of the responses to the public consultation of the Sayce Review.
