We are not able to measure the number of disabled people moving into employment as a direct result of it, but the campaign is an important contributor towards our commitment to halve the gap between the employment rates of disabled and non-disabled people.</p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>We have worked with large employers and expert partners to develop a voluntary reporting framework to support organisations to record and voluntarily report information on disability, mental health and wellbeing in the workplace. This framework was published on 22<sup>nd</sup> November 2018 and is aimed at large employers with 250 or more employees. The framework encourages employers to report what steps they are taking to support their disabled employees and employee health and wellbeing as well as the percentage of individuals within their organisation with a disability or a long-term physical or mental health condition. Government are working with partners to actively promote the framework and to monitor and review its effectiveness.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>We continue to work with employers to support and encourage them to build healthy, inclusive workplaces where disabled people and people with health conditions can thrive.</p><p>Through Disability Confident we are getting employers to think differently about disability and to take action to improve how they attract, recruit and retain disabled workers. The Department is constantly looking to improve the Disability Confident offer to employers that sign up and to do this we have introduced a specialist themed approach, offering additional advice, guidance and support on a wide range of topics such as Mental Health, Autism and Neuro-diversity and Reasonable adjustments.</p><p> </p><p>The Department is also working more directly with smaller employers through the new Small Employer Offer, which provides small employers with a personalised package of support including advice from specialist advisers.</p><p>Finally, Access to Work provides practical and financial support for employers and employees with the additional costs faced by individuals whose health or disability affects the way they do their job. The scheme does not replace the duty an employer has under the Equality Act to make reasonable adjustments, instead it provides support that is over and above that.</p>
