here you go folks:

Sayce Review of employment services for disabled people and Government response
March 22, 2012

In March 2012, the Government published its response to the Sayce Review into employment services for disabled people.

In its response, the Government:

    welcomed the Sayce Review which made a large number of recommendations about how we can deliver more effective specialist disability employment programmes to help more disabled people move into and keep work.
    supported the central theme that resources should be directed towards disabled people themselves, giving them maximum choice and control in the services they receive.
    accepted all of the recommendations on Access to Work specifically that it is highly cost effective, should be made more widely available and funding should be increased as resources are released from the reform of less effective programmes.
    accepted the recommendations on Remploy the Government will reduce its current subsidy to Remploy from the beginning of the new financial year so that it ceases funding factories which make significant losses year after year and restrict funding to factories which might have a prospect of a viable future without Government subsidy.

The Government also announced that an extra 15m is available for Access to Work in this Spending Review period. And with other efficiencies this will help a further 8,000 disabled people to either enter work or retain their job.

By sanctioning them into starvation whilst simultaeously forcing them into work that shortens their lives and furthre damages their health - nice definition of "help".


    supported the central theme that resources should be directed towards disabled people themselves, giving them maximum choice and control in the services they receive.

Are these resources mandatory work placements by any chance?
And the services are what exactly?
Oddly I have a suspicion that there are no services, just mandatory work programs with no choice or control (pretty much the definition of mandatory).
Maximise zero and you get - zero.


    accepted all of the recommendations on Access to Work specifically that it is highly cost effective, should be made more widely available and funding should be increased as resources are released from the reform of less effective programmes.

But Access to Work is being limited to medium and large organisations which can absorb both the costs and the disabled person much easier than a small organisation.
Less people will be classified as disabled, hence it will really be less widely available.
I'm suspicious about the phrase "funding should be increased as resources are released from the reform of less effective programmes". What are these less effective programs, and who judged them to be so? Surely not Liz piss-pants Sayce...


    accepted the recommendations on Remploy the Government will reduce its current subsidy to Remploy from the beginning of the new financial year so that it ceases funding factories which make significant losses year after year and restrict funding to factories which might have a prospect of a viable future without Government subsidy.

Sayce is a bitch.

The Government also announced that an extra 15m is available for Access to Work in this Spending Review period. And with other efficiencies this will help a further 8,000 disabled people to either enter work or retain their job.

Ohhh all it costs is 1875 to help disabled people. What, by giving it to A4arseholes?

Disgruntled? Moi? >devil<

Hi

"as resources are released from the reform of less effective programmes" is a reference to the closure of Remploy = which Sayce recommended

"resources should be directed towards disabled people themselves"
I think this is a reference to direct payments of care funding to individual disabled people - but that money is supposed to pay for care, not work related costs

I think that the resources directed will be A2W and workprograms :(

I dont know how she dare call Remploy "less effective" - thats a financial judgement, not a qualitive one. Which shows that money is all that matters.
