This chapter assesses the scale of the challenge in supporting more disabled people into work. It then seeks to establish an understanding of what disability is, and uses this to consider recent trends in disability and work and how these might have exacerbated the challenge of supporting more disabled people into work. The chapter examines how the government is attempting to tackle the issues and the prospects for greater numbers of disabled people entering work in the future. It also suggests what a longer-term, more ambitious strategy might look like, describing seven key elements of such a strategy.
