The Department for Work and Pensions has announced a new £40 million support package for disabled people which will enable them to work with a dedicated key worker to get and stay in employment. The Intensive Personalised Employment Support programme, which will roll out in 2019, will provide highly individualised packages of employment support for people who are at least a year away from moving into work. People on the scheme will get a dedicated key worker who will work with them to overcome complex barriers which may be preventing them from entering work. Support will include coaching to help build independence, confidence and motivation, as well as work experience to help boost career prospects.
