Increasing the employment of disabled people in the public sector – closes 15 August

A  key action in the ‘A Fairer Scotland for Disabled People -Our Action Plan’ states:

“Disabled people are 20% of the population, but make up only 11% of the private sector workforce and 11.7% of the public sector workforce. We will consult with DPOs and public sector bodies around setting targets to redress this imbalance.”

This document focusses specifically on what more can be done to support more disabled people into work in the public sector. It also includes related issues, such as recruitment processes, and what further actions are needed to help close the disability employment gap.
