Together Matters has produced a guide to encourage conversations and planning so more people with learning disabilities are part of the world of work.

People need many more opportunities to think, and talk, about the world of work. Also, to meet those with local jobs and businesses. Local organisations and businesses need to see that people with learning disabilities are keen to find work and have lots to contribute.

Report

The ‘I already have a job…’ report, by Chronic Illness Inclusion and Leeds University Business School, sets out how government, employers and the benefits system are failing millions of people in the UK with Energy Limiting Chronic Illnesses (ELCIs). 

Although one in three disabled people of working age experiences problems with stamina, breathing or fatigue, the report says that their needs are not reflected in the workplace, in legislation, or by disability assessments like the Work Capability Assessment (WCA). 

Despite ELCIs affecting almost 5 million adults in the UK, these people are hidden within disability-related policies because their lived experiences of illness and impairment is widely misunderstood, often discredited, denied and disbelieved.

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).
