Access to Work Issues Arising from Covid-19 Emergency

Access to Work Issues Arising from Covid-19 Emergency

Disabled people who have applied for and receive Access To Work funding are having problems with receiving it during the pandemic, leading to a campaigning organisation writing to the Government.

Inclusion London, a user-led group, say that delays in awards and difficulties in getting responses when contacting the Department Of Work And Pensions could lead to working disabled people not being able retain their jobs, now and even after the crisis.

You can download a copy of Inclusion London’s letter to Justin Tomlinson,
Minister for Disabled people, Health and Work here outlining their concerns and suggesting actions to resolve the issues. Further information is on Inclusion London’s website .

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.
