star this property answer text <p>This Government is committed to enabling young disabled people to fulfil their potential and achieve their aspirations. We provide a wide suite of programmes and initiatives to support them, including:</p><p> </p><ul><li>Jobcentre support for schools, which targets young people that schools identify as being at risk of becoming NEET (not in employment, education or training), or who may otherwise be disadvantaged in the labour market – for example those with a health or disability issue.</li><li>The Young Person’s Supported Work Experience programme, which will offer a personally tailored supported work experience opportunity to enable young people (aged 18 – 24) to benefit fully from time in the work place. This proof of concept is being tested in five districts.</li><li>The Local Supported Employment (LSE) proof of concept ‘place and train’ model, which aims to move disabled people into real jobs, at the going rate of pay, with support for both the individual and employer.</li><li>Supported Internships, which, all qualified post-16 education providers in England have been able to deliver Since September 2013. These are personalised study programmes, based primarily at a prospective employer, for young people with complex learning difficulties and/or disabilities.</li><li>Access to Work, which already offers support to disabled people undertaking a number of opportunities that help them to prepare for paid employment, including work experience, apprenticeships, supported internships and traineeships.</li></ul><p>DWP also recognises the value of voluntary work in developing skills which can be transferred into the world of paid work, as well as benefitting local communities and wider society.</p><ul><li>Disabled young people who are claiming Universal Credit can have their weekly work search hours reduced by up to 50 per cent to accommodate voluntary work.</li><li>Those who are receiving Employment and Support Allowance can try out work when this has been agreed beforehand with their work coach, without their benefit being affected. Restrictions on this Permitted Work were relaxed in April 2017 so that any ESA claimant can do this work within certain limits.</li></ul>

Universal Credit disregards elements paid for specific additional costs the student has, such as tuition or books. Once the total annual loan is calculated, Universal Credit applies a flat rate monthly disregard of £110 whilst the claimant remains a student.</p> more like this

Independent reviews form an important part of the learning process and we are constantly looking to improve the experience of claiming PIP. We recognise the scale of the challenge in implementing a new benefit so committed to two, statutory independent reviews of PIP. The latest of these reviews, led by Paul Gray, was published on 30 March 2017 and we plan to respond to this later this year.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>The Department encourages claimants to provide as much relevant evidence as necessary to support their claim. Before claimants are invited for a face-to-face consultation, all of the available evidence is reviewed and if, at that stage, advice to the Department can be made on this evidence alone, the claimants will not be required to attend a face-to-face assessment.</p><p>We continue to work extensively with the PIP assessment providers and disability representative groups to make improvements to guidance, training and audit procedures in order to ensure a quality service.</p>
