Having a job matters

Only 4.8% of adults with a learning disability known to adult social care in England are in paid work (NHS Digital, 2022).

Being employed is about more than earning money. It’s about feeling valued, independent and fulfilled. We’re doing everything we can to make this possible for more people with a learning disability.
