- 2010 National Disabled Members' Conference
- 9 July 2010
This Conference is alarmed at the reports of disabled members being denied the right to control their Access to Work packages in the workplace. We are only too aware of the ignorance from some disabled people about how our conditions and impairments affect us, we are also concerned that non disabled people do not fully understand how access and facilitation can be used to remove barriers and enable us to be competitive in the workforce and more participative in society.
This conference calls upon the National Disabled Members’ Committee to:
a)Issue revised guidance to branches that includes the revised tariffs of employer contributions
b)Lobby the Department for Work and Pensions to issue guidance to Job Centre Plus and private companies providing Access to Work support that sets out good practice of disabled people being in control of their own services and facilities.
