Resourcing The Workstep Programme For Disabled People

EDM number 1732 in 2005-06, proposed by Martin Caton on 01/03/2006.

That this House supports the Government objective of helping disabled people into employment; applauds the success of the Workstep programme in enabling people with one or more disabilities facing complex barriers to work to develop the confidence and skills they need to secure useful employment; recognises that the people this programme can assist need support that is ongoing, flexible, long-term and focused on the individual; notes that this might take the form of training, specialist equipment or hands-on assistance from a helper; is concerned, however, that Workstep provides for around 23,555 people across the UK, whilst it is estimated that more than 300,000 disabled people could benefit from the programme; and calls on the Government therefore to increase resources for this work so that the real demand for Workstep can be met.

This motion has been signed by a total of 47 MPs.
