star this property answer text <p>Whilst we do not set out a minimum number of minutes a year, claimants moving into the work-related activity group (or the appropriate labour market regime in Universal Credit) will be offered support from a work coach. This includes an initial meeting with a work coach, which will provide tailored support for the claimant based on their individual circumstances and capabilities, with the aim of helping them prepare for work in the future. Follow up meetings will then be carried out, with the expectation that this support should be offered at least quarterly. The exact number of minutes of support will be based on the needs of the claimant.</p> more like this

We have seen almost 500,000 more disabled people in employment over the past three years. Over the same time we’ve seen the employment rate for disabled people increase by over 4 percentage points, where it now stands at 48 per cent.</p><p>We want to build on this. We are clear that sustained progress calls for action across the areas of welfare, employment and health. Although the Government has an important role to play in leading the way and facilitating change, everyone needs to play their part. That is why we have just published “<em>Improving Lives: The Work, Health and Disability Green Paper</em>”. It sets out the short-term action we intend to take to bring about change, alongside our intention to work with others to change perceptions and transform the culture around disability, health and work. The aim of the public consultation is to spark a proactive, wide-ranging and challenging conversation and build a consensus for change. It includes questions on proposals for longer-term reform over this Parliament and beyond, so that our systems, sectors and social attitudes all work together to help achieve the ambition of halving the disability employment gap.</p>
