In the Government response to the consultation on the recommendations in Liz Sayce's review "Getting in, staying in and getting on", the Government undertook to work with disabled people to establish how to make some of the improvements recommended for Access to Work. The Government want to be sure that these recommendations are implemented in the most cost effective way. The Government will be discussing developments to Access to Work with the Equality 2025 advisory group. Further co-production with disabled people, including deafblind people, will be announced in the summer.
