Richard Benyon, today welcomed the launch of Enham Futures, a new employment skills programme which aims to support people with disabilities into sustained paid jobs. Enham Futures marks the start of a new partnership between the Enham Trust and Remploy.
Following his visit, Richard said: “I find it staggering that more than half of working age people out of work in the UK are disabled. Everybody deserves the dignity of employment. A pay packet and the independence that comes with it is vital for people’s wellbeing.”
Richard continued: “It is still difficult to help disabled people find jobs, but with the combined expertise of the Trust and Remploy, more employers will see the value of employing disabled people.”
