Here at People Matters we know that people with learning disabilities often want to work. Only about 7% have jobs but research says 65% want to. We have recently been awarded the DWP Two Ticks award. This means that anyone with a disability who meets the criteria will be interviewed when they apply for a job. (As well as other commitments we have made under the scheme). Here is a DWP Disability employment Adviser awarding us the Two ticks Award.
