The Government is committed to improving employment outcomes for disabled people. We have underpinned this with our manifesto pledge to see one million more disabled people in employment in the next 10 years.

We will shortly publish a document which will provide an update on the work we have been doing since the Green Paper consultation, respond to the consultation, and set out our next steps.
