Creating a fairer Britain
This report presents the findings of a qualitative study conducted to collect evidence for the Commission’s Working Better programme. This programme aims to set a new work agenda to meet the changing needs of families, workers and employers in the 21st century. It seeks to find solutions that will increase choice, fairness and equality, and improve the outlook for the economy in the longer term.
The research was designed to understand how the world of work could be opened up to enable more disabled people to participate fully and more employers to realise the potential of their disabled employees. It sought to look beyond the barriers and to identify how workplaces could become more inclusive.
The research was conducted through a series of group discussions and depth interviews with disabled people between October and December 2010.
