Westminster Employment Forum

Disability and health in the workplace - next steps for bridging the employment gap and improving support for employers

November 2018

This seminar will bring together national policymakers with stakeholders to consider the steps that can be taken by employers and policymakers to improve support for those with a disability or long-term health condition.

It will be an opportunity to assess the progress and initial lessons in implementing the Government’s plan to improve the employment prospects of those with a disability. Delegates will examine options for better joining up support across the welfare system, the workplace and the healthcare system.

Sessions will discuss latest thinking and practical issues for creating inclusive workplaces and look at the financial support available through Access to Work along with assessing the Government’s strategy to transform employment prospects for those with disabilities. Further discussion will focus on mental health at work and providing prompt support to employees, preventing long-term absences from the workplace.

Price: £95 PLUS VAT

Shortly after every Westminster Employment Forum seminar, a briefing document is produced. This is distributed to all delegates on the day as well as to our policymaker contacts in government, and to stakeholders more widely.

A seminar publication provides a timely record of proceedings, and acts as a guide to the latest thinking on current policy issues for those unable to be at the event.
