On Tuesday 14 January UKCoD and the BDA held a seminar on the Department for Work and Pensions’ Access to Work scheme.
The seminar covered the following areas:
- Campaign Plan – Access to Work
- a presentation on recent research by the BDA on deaf peoples’ use of Access to Work
- discussion about how to improve Access to Work
The BDA will publish their Access to Work report next month after collecting responses from 121 deaf people who have used the scheme in the past five months. The report will be produced in early February when it will be presented to the new Minister for Disabled People and the Department for Work and Pensions..
