In October 2016 we published Improving Lives: the Work, Health and Disability Green Paper, setting out the Government’s approach to work and health and inviting views on a ten-year strategy for reform.

We engaged with a wide range of stakeholders and others with an interest during the Green Paper consultation period and received around 6,000 responses. We are working towards a publication later this year, which will provide an update on the work we have been doing since the Green Paper, respond to the consultation, and set out our next steps.
