Work And Benefits For People With Autism

EDM number 56 in 2009-10, proposed by Adrian Sanders on 18/11/2009.
Categorised under the topic of Sickness, disability and carers' benefits.

That this House recognises that over half of people with autism have spent time with neither jobs nor benefits; further recognises that only 15 per cent. are currently in full-time work; acknowledges that the system is failing people with autism, as over 80 per cent. of people with autism who applied for benefits needed support to do so; agrees that no-one should be written off; congratulates the National Autistic Society for highlighting these issues in its campaign Don't Write Me Off; and calls on the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions to make the system fair for people with autism.

This motion has been signed by a total of 90 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
