The Minister for Disabled People recently announced a new incentive scheme that will be available for young disabled people. It is a wage incentive plan that offers employers up to £2,275 for employing young disabled people through Work Choice. It will be available from July 2012.
Work Choice is a specialist disability employment programme that provides tailored support to help disabled people who have complex support needs.
The incentivised scheme is aiming to provide more work opportunities to young disabled people and will sit alongside the government’s Youth Contract plans. The Youth Contract was announced in April 2012 and provides £1billion to help young unemployed people get a job.
