Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) have published Universal Credit for single disabled people which shows how single disabled people are up to £300 worse off every month when they transfer to Universal Credit due to the different income rules.

CAB worked with their advisers and other disability and health charities to identify areas where Universal Credit improves support for disabled people, has reduced support compared to the legacy system, and may generate unintended consequences as this group of people continue to move on to the new benefit.

This toolkit has been produced by neurodivergent members of GMB staff in consultation with neurodivergent GMB members.

The aim of this document is to provide information and advice that can be used to help make workplaces more inclusive for neurodivergent workers.

For reasons of length, it does not contain a detailed introduction to individual neurodivergent conditions. Separate guidance notes are being produced (although the difficulties of generalising about neurodiversity should be stressed at all points).

This toolkit was created so that Enterprise Coordinators and Enterprise Advisers can better understand the career landscape for young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). The publishers worked with experts who support young people with SEND to explore what positive outcomes for young people with SEND look like, and what can be achieved by working in partnership and drawing on best practice from around the country.
