Employment strategy for people with a learning disability

In March 2001 the Government published a white paper called Valuing People – a new strategy for learning disability for the 21st century. One of its main objectives is to enable more people with learning disabilities to participate in all forms of employment, wherever possible in paid work and to make a valued contribution to the world of work.

This employment strategy is our response to this challenge. By Kent County Council, Jobcentre Plus, and others working together we aim to provide employment opportunities so that everyone who wants work gets the support they need to do so.
