Disability Transitions: Combatting Young Disabled People’s Worklessness

This 18 month research project has been funded by the Leverhulme Trust to develop an international academic network addressing the urgent problem of young disabled people’s worklessness.   Problems include the barriers to and often fractured pathways of disabled young people’s access to paid employment.

Academics from social policy, economics, labour market studies, psychology, rehabilitation, public health and health geographies are working together to address this issue in a way that emphasises knowledge exchange between academia, government and disabled people’s organisations.
