Deaf News: Access to Work inquiry evidence made available online

Posted on July 3, 2014

The Work and Pensions Committee recently announced an inquiry into the Access to Work scheme, asking Deaf and disabled people to give evidence by 20th June about their experiences of receiving employment support.

The inquiry is particularly interested in the application and assessment processes, whether the ongoing support is adequate and whether ATW is helping them to get a job and stay in employment.

Now, the written responses given to the inquiry has been published in full online, detailing positive and negative experiences in detail.

These submissions will be joined by evidence which will be submitted in BSL, which must be given by 1st August.
