UK Council on Deafness and the British Deaf Association (BDA) held a seminar on the Department for Work and Pensions’ Access to Work scheme on Tuesday 14 January in London and were joined by National Association of Deafened People (NADP) who provided supplemented information for the Report.
The seminar on Access to Work covered the following areas:
- Campaign Plan – Access to Work
- a presentation on recent research on deaf peoples use of Access to Work by the BDA
- discussion about how to improve Access to Work
The BDA will launch their Access to Work report next month after collecting responses from 121 deaf people who use Access to Work in the past five months. This consultation period will end on 26th January in order to have the report finalised early February when it will be seen by the new Minister and the DWP.
