Disabled and Desperate to Work

Nikki Fox investigates why getting a job is so hard for disabled people in the UK. Are disabled people too much hassle to employ? Are they competing hard enough in a tough jobs market? And is there enough help to break down the barriers for business?

In her own inimitable style, Nikki meets employers, policy makers, job-hunters, and even a 2012 Paralympian to examine the reasons behind the high levels of unemployment amongst disabled people.
