We will continue our work to protect women and girls, including pledging £100 million in dedicated funding until 2020 to tackle violence against women and girls, while our landmark draft Domestic Abuse Bill will help transform our approach to protect and support victims, and bring perpetrators to justice.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Universal Credit Full Service is fully compatible with accessibility software. Where our customers need assistance to access our services and information, we make adjustments to meet their individual needs. DWP customers who have a specific communication barrier are able to use a variety of different formats such as Braille, audio, and large print, through third party interpreters, and by arranging for a member of staff to visit the customer in their home. All jobcentres have also hearing loops.</p><p> </p><p>Accessibility software specifically for blind and partially sighted claimants is not currently available in jobcentres. However, we are starting research later this month to understand how best we can improve the service to support these claimants. Possible geographical variation in support will also be explored in this research. The Department is already involved in the cross-government accessibility community, and we plan to work with other third parties to better understand the complexities and issues involved with assistive technology.</p>

star this property answer text <p>We are constantly looking at ways to improve Disability Confident and have introduced a Professional Advisers Group (PAG). The PAG works with officials to evaluate the impact of different aspects of the scheme and suggest amendments and developments where appropriate. For example, we have introduced a Specialist Thematic approach, which has so far delivered two programmes focused on mental health and workplace adjustments. These programmes have been evaluated by the PAG, and suggested improvements will be incorporated into further specialist themed programmes.</p><p> </p><p>The PAG has also considered the impact of the scheme itself, and has recommended a number of changes which have been incorporated and disseminated recently.</p><p>We have also appointed a Disability Confident Business Leaders Group (BLG), comprising of senior leaders from significant British businesses across all sectors. The BLG is helping to increase engagement with employers, promoting the business benefits of disability employment, and working with my officials to identify any changes or developments that will improve the effectiveness of the scheme.</p><p>We plan to conduct a more formal and robust evaluation of the Disability Confident scheme, and will be discussing this with the PAG, BLG, and other key stakeholders.</p>
