The Government has now responded to Danny Kruger's report.

The Government has published pre-launch guidance about the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF). 

This provides further information to local authorities and other partners across the United Kingdom on:

The Department for Levelling Up, Housing & Communities (DLUHC) has published the Levelling Up White Paper.

The Welsh Senedd is consulting on an updated strategic action plan for supporting people with a learning disability. We understand that the consultation closes at the end of February.

BASE is joining a research project being led by the Scottish Centre for Employment Research (SCER). The project is funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and seeks to identify the challenges we need to address if we are to maximise the growth and potential of IPS and Supported Employment in the future.

The Government has responded to the Work and Pensions Committee inquiry into the disability employment gap. BASE gave both written and oral evidence to the committee which published its report in July.

The Work and Pensions Committee has published a report on its inquiry into the Disability Employment Gap. BASE gave oral evidence to the committee and we welcome its findings.

The Government has published the long-awaited National Disability Strategy. It follows a consultation that was strongly criticised by disability campaigners. It is published on the DWP website rather than by the Cabinet Office which led development of the strategy.

The strategy contains a range of proposals covering education, employment, housing, transport, leisure and access to services.
