Research

This report presents the findings of a research study which examined employers' views and experiences of supported employment for disabled people.

The overall aim of the research was to investigate the current state of play in relation to supported employment for disabled people in Scotland. The aim of supported employment is to help disabled people access the open labour market by providing initial support through a job coach. Over time, the aim is to gradually withdraw the initial intensive support, until the disabled person is supported by his or her co-workers.
