The All Party Parliamentary Group for Disability invites written submissions to inform its inquiry into how the Government can fulfil its pledge to halve the disability employment gap.

Please feel free to share them with us and let us know if you are happy to use them as examples in our response. We are happy to anonymise them if you would prefer.FULL ARTICLE
