Green Paper on Work, health and disability: improving lives
The Green Paper proposes that more people are supported into work, that the process of assessing for benefits for people with health conditions is improved, that employers should be supported to recruit more disabled people and also to ensure that they can stay in work, and that health and high quality care for all will be a foundation of supporting employment. It also says there should be care for anyone who can’t work.
Equal Lives has provided a response based on questions that were proposed by the consultation. These questions are available in the appendix as well as an additional response to the consultation. This is available to download below:
