Disabled Jobseeker: ‘All I Want Is For Someone To Have Faith In Me’

February 15, 2022

The government wants to see one million more disabled people in work in the next five years.

But the disability employment gap remains stubbornly high – only about 50% of disabled people are in work, compared to 80% of non-disabled people.

Amrit Dhaliwal is blind and has been applying for jobs for the past five years.

But she’s come up against many barriers – including being told by one organisation she can’t even volunteer there because their office “isn’t safe” for a blind person.
