Learning disability employment policy in England was led by the Valuing Employment Now (VEN) Team until it was disbanded in April 2010. Employment policy is now led by the Valuing People Now team. Only 6.4% of people with a significant disability are in paid employment in England (2010). Valuing Employment Now was published in June 2009 and is the main cross-Government policy document for England.

UnLtd report suggests how social entrepreneurs can be harnessed to achieve improved employment rates for people with a disability. 

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) is organising a series of engagement events to support the development of the Local Supported Employment (LSE) Trial.  This trial builds on the proof of concept DWP recently delivered in partnership with 9 Local Authorities in 2018, to further test whether DWP, in partnership with LAs, is able to increase the delivery of high quality supported employment for people with a learning disability or autism, who are known to adult social care or those in contact with secondary mental health services. 

Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) and Greater Manchester Health  & Social Care  Partnership (GMHSCP) are working on a joint project to increase Specialist Employment Service provision (Supported Employment and Individual Placement and Support) for people with learning disabilities, people with severe mental illness and autistic adults specifically. It is proposed that this is done through the commissioning of a new GM service, part funded by European funding.

The Health and Wellbeing Alliance has published an Employer's Guide to Supported Employment. You can download it from our Knowledge pages.

This guide aims to support employers including line managers, Human Resources leads and others responsible for recruitment to improve the diversity of their workforce through providing more employment opportunities, better outcomes and support for people with mental health conditions, a learning disability and / or autism.
