This is the cover of Research report 59: Disability, skills and employment

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (the Commission) recognises that many disabled people experience barriers in entering and succeeding in employment, and wishes to take a strategic and evidence-based approach to influencing policy and practice. The Centre for Research in Education, Inclusion and Diversity (CREID) at the University of Edinburgh was commissioned to review the current literature, statistics and debates in order to inform the Commission’s work aimed at narrowing the employment and skills gap between disabled and non-disabled people.
