Maria Miller and Liz Sayce discuss Access to Work
The government has responded to Liz Sayce's report on specialist disability employment programmes by launching a consultation this week.
Liz Sayce, chief exec at Radar, recommended that Access to Work become more widely available and that more money go into it. Money could be found, she suggests, through decreasing funding to 'less effective programmes' like Remploy and residential training colleges.
Liz Sayce and the Minister for Disabled People, Maria Miller, joined Peter White on yesterday's You and Yours programme on Radio 4. Here is a transcript of their discussion.
- You and Yours is on Radio 4, Monday to Friday at 12pm.
