‘Making Work a Real Choice’, a report and accompanying consultation launched by employment and skills charity Shaw Trust. The charity aims to lead a sector-wide debate on the future provision of specialist employment support services for people with disabilities, impairments and health problems. The debate coincides with the government’s on-going review of the existing scheme, Work Choice, and its forthcoming action plan in connection with its Fulfilling Potential strategy led by the Office for Disability Issues.
