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.

Mencap’s Big Learning Disability Survey closes at the end of July. They are asking questions on topics that people with a learning disability have said are important to them. This is the last chance for people with a learning disability to take part in Mencap’s national survey as it closes at the end of July.
