star this property answer text <p>The Government is strongly committed to increasing employment opportunities for disabled people, including those with autism. Taking a life course approach, we are working across Government and with local authorities, voluntary organisations and employers in the public and private sectors to achieve this. Help and support for people with autism includes:</p><p> </p><ul><li>Access to Work, a discretionary grant scheme which offers advice and practical and financial support above the level of reasonable adjustments to disabled people who are in work or about to start work. Access to Work has also put in place a Hidden Impairment Specialist Team that gives advice and guidance to help employers support employees with conditions such as Autism, Learning Disability and/or Mental Health conditions. It also offers eligible people an assessment to find out their needs at work and help to develop a support plan.</li><li>In 2017/18, the highest ever number of people received AtW payments - 33,860, up 13% on 2016/17.</li><li>Through working with Autism Alliance, we have developed the Disability Confident Autism and Neurodiversity Toolkit, to help staff from all Government Departments understand how to support people with autism and associated neuro-diverse conditions. We also developed the Disability Passport ‘About Me’ which aims to encourage disabled claimants, including individuals with autism, to disclose their disability/ health conditions at the earliest stage to their Adviser, to improve communication and ensure reasonable adjustments are put in place. Both the toolkit and passport are hosted on Autism Alliance’s website.</li><li>Also through working with Autism Alliance, we delivered Autism and Hidden Impairment training to over 1000 nominated staff across the Jobcentre Plus network. Feedback from delegates confirms that the training helped staff to understand how to support people with autism or hidden impairments into employment.</li><li>The Civil Service has committed to support the Autism Exchange Programme, and my Department is working with Ambitious about Autism to provide work placement opportunities for young people.</li><li>Through the Disability Confident scheme, DWP is engaging with employers and helping to promote the skills, talents and abilities of people with autism and associated hidden impairment conditions. Through the scheme, DWP is providing advice and support to help employers feel more confident about employing disabled people, by signposting them to appropriate advice guidance and support.</li></ul><p><em>Improving Lives: the Future of Work, Health and Disability</em>, published last year, sets out the Government’s strategy for helping people with disabilities or health conditions, including learning difficulties and autism, enter and remain in employment. Whilst the initiatives are not all aimed exclusively at autistic people, we expect that many will benefit from these initiatives.</p><p> </p>

Whilst the programme is not aimed exclusively at autistic people, we expect that many will benefit from its support; we will be releasing official statistics this year. However, the programme has been warmly welcomed by WHP Providers and their supply chain, external stakeholders and, most importantly, our customers, and is already helping people into lasting work.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Personal Independence Payment (PIP) has different eligibility criteria to Disability Living Allowance (DLA), and takes a more holistic view of a person’s health condition or disability and the impact it has on their ability to live an independent life. Therefore, when a DLA claimant is invited to claim PIP and is reassessed, the level of their award may stay the same, go up, down or cease altogether depending on their assessed level of need. It is important to note that the claimant may no longer have the condition recorded in the DLA system when they apply for PIP.</p><p>We introduced PIP to replace the outdated DLA system. PIP is a fairer benefit, which takes a much wider look at the way an individual’s health condition or disability impacts them on a daily basis. Under PIP, 30 per cent of claimants are receiving the highest possible support, compared with just 15 per cent under DLA.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>3,480 DLA claimants with Leukaemia have been reassessed from DLA to PIP and of this 1,080 received a reduced award amount on PIP compared to DLA, 840 were disallowed PIP post referral to the Assessment Provider and 140 were disallowed PIP pre-referral to the Assessment Provider.</p><p> </p><p>520 DLA claimants with Myeloma have been reassessed from DLA to PIP and of this 200 received a reduced award amount on PIP compared to DLA, 70 were disallowed PIP post referral to the Assessment Provider and 10 were disallowed PIP pre-referral to the Assessment Provider.</p><p> </p><p>300 DLA claimants with Hodgkin's lymphoma have been reassessed from DLA to PIP and of this 100 received a reduced award amount on PIP compared to DLA, 90 were disallowed PIP post referral to the Assessment Provider and 20 were disallowed PIP pre-referral to the Assessment Provider.</p><p> </p><p>660 DLA claimants with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma have been reassessed from DLA to PIP and of this 240 received a reduced award amount on PIP compared to DLA, 160 were disallowed PIP post referral to the Assessment Provider and 20 were disallowed PIP pre-referral to the Assessment Provider.</p><p> </p><p><strong>Notes</strong></p><ul><li>The category “Leukaemia” includes 6 categories under the DLA computer system - Leukaemia - myelogenous (myeloid) acute, Leukaemia - lymphoblastic – acute, Leukaemia - myeloid - chronic, Leukaemia - lymphocytic – chronic, Leukaemias - Other / type not known, Cancer and Leukaemia.</li><li>The PIP Reassessment outcome is the outcome of the first DWP decision on each reassessment claim (i.e. prior to any reconsideration, appeal action and award review), where that decision was made between 1st October 2013 and 31st October 2017.</li><li>Claimants that withdrew their claim to PIP are excluded.</li><li>DLA Entitlement is the DLA award at the time of PIP reassessment registration.</li><li>Reassessment outcomes are for individuals who were aged 16 to 64 on 8th April 2013.</li><li>Data includes PIP claims made under both Normal Rules and Special Rules for the Terminally Ill. However, under DLA a claimant can be recorded as “Terminally Ill” rather than as having a named disability. Therefore, such cases are excluded from the above figures.</li><li>The statistics provided relate to DLA award levels so primary disabling condition is reported as recorded on the DLA computer system. Claimants may often have multiple disabling conditions upon which the decision is based but only the primary condition is shown in these statistics.</li><li>Primary disabling condition may be recorded differently on the PIP and DLA computer systems.</li><li>Figures are rounded to the nearest 10.</li><li>Great Britain only.</li></ul>
