star this property answer text <p>We set out our continued commitment to improving employment rates for disabled people and people with long-term health conditions in Improving Lives: The Future of Work, Health and Disability. The goal is to see an increase in the number of disabled people in work from 3.5 million in Q1 2017 to 4.5 million in Q1 2027. In the first two years of the goal (Q1 2017 to Q1 2019), the number of disabled people in employment increased by 404,000. We welcome the continuing positive trends, and remain committed to unlocking the potential of all disabled people searching for work. We still have a significant way to go before achieving the goal.</p><p> </p><p>No single measure can capture everything that we want to achieve and we will continue to monitor improvements in the employment rate gap and other measures alongside the goal.</p> more like this
