The We Work for Everyone programme will specifically target people with a learning difficulty to support them to find, secure and maintain paid employment, supported by a Navigator on a 1 to 1 basis.
Up to 10% of the population have a learning difficulty. However employment rates for people with learning difficulties remain stubbornly low. The employment rate in the UK for people with learning difficulties is low at 5.7% with 71% of those working part-time. Research identifies that they can and do want to work, but are often denied the opportunity because there are many barriers to finding meaningful paid work.
