In 2012, 46.3% of working-age disabled people were in employment compared to 76.4% of working-age non-disabled people.
If disabled people's employment rate matched that of the rest of the population, an extra two million disabled people would be in work.
NEED - The National Employer Engagement Database strives to bring employers, educators, charities and other interested stakeholders
together to help more people with a disability to achiever their potential.
We are building a genuinely collaborative, inclusive national database to identify, and recognise these significant branded national employers,
who pledge meaningful tangible and identifiable support in helping people with disabilities not only to get jobs, but also to retain those jobs and flourish in them.
