ecdp hosts DWP engagement event to support the development of the Disability Employment Strategy

On 21 August, in conjunction with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), ecdp hosted an engagement event to support the development of the Government’s Disability Employment Strategy due to be published later on this year.

The event was attended by a range of stakeholders who have particular insight or perspective on the issue: disabled people and those close to them; Jobcentre plus staff; local public service providers including the two mental health trusts; and employment providers.

The event focused on local issues and what needs to happen to make a difference – ensuring that the voice of lived experience continues to shape government strategy.
