This encompasses priorities around:
- supporting groups that are under-represented in the labour market, including disabled people, who were disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic
- initiatives to support people from these groups to start, stay, and succeed in work
transforming support for disabled people and people with health conditions to promote independent living and improve the customer experience
- influencing positive employer behaviours and promote good Occupational Health practice to help people maintain attachment to the labour market
