Improving Employment Services for disabled people

Improving Existing Employment Services for Disabled People is an action point in the government's Disability Action Plan. To progress this work MSD has convened a group of representatives from the disability and mental health sectors, as well as officials from MSD and ACC.  Together the group is jointly developing and informing the process to improve employment outcomes for disabled people.

The first step in this work is to undertake a comprehensive survey to better understand what employment supports (both contracted and non-contracted) are currently being offered, and to identify barriers and trends in the labour market.  There are two versions of the survey - one for providers of services and one for disabled people.

The survey has been written and developed by the representative group and the data will be analysed by an independent contractor.  The survey takes approximately 10 - 15 minutes to complete.

The survey is now open, and providers of support services and disabled people are invited to participate.  To access the survey please click on the links below.
