One stop shop for organisations of all sizes to increase knowledge and confidence around disability and recruitment
As Chairman of the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Multiple Sclerosis – a cross party group of MPs and Peers with an interest in multiple sclerosis– I would be delighted if you would consider providing written evidence to a review the APPG is conducting into employment support for people with MS, by responding to our survey by Friday 29th April.
The review is seeking to understand the barriers to employment faced by people living with MS, and the employment-related support provided to them currently. It is also looking at what support people with MS need to retain and sustain employment. The review is focusing particularly on where improvement is needed and what interventions could be made.
Due to your expertise in the field of health, disability or employment I would be keen to benefit from your valuable insight and knowledge to use in the review.
The call for evidence aims to gather information from a wide range of perspectives and people affected by MS. Following the conclusion of the review, a report of the evidence gathered and any recommendations arising from it will be published in Autumn 2016. It is hoped that the review will influence positively the design and the delivery of employment support to better meet the needs of people with MS and other long-term conditions.
I would be very grateful if you would consider completing our survey - please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to be sent a copy.
Should you be aware of any other organisations or individuals undertaking work in the field of health, disability and employment who might be interested in completing the survey, please do forward it to them.
If you have any questions, or require any further information, please do not hesitate to get in touch with Katharine at the MS Society.
