A report published by Demos suggests that Ministers should consider abolishing the Department for Work and Pensions after its failure to help ill and disabled people out of poverty. The Pathways from Poverty report suggests that most of the department's work could be carried out more effectively by other Whitehall ministries.

A new Wildgoose workplace survey has shown that over 50 percent of UK employees surveyed feel disability inclusion is most important inclusion issue that should be tackled in their workplace.

62% of discriminatory queries at The Equality Advisory Support Service (EASS) are about disability and the Wildgoose survey demonstrates that employers are not doing enough to be inclusive to those with a disability.
