Memorandum submitted by Derbyshire Welfare
Welcome the considerable success of Pathway
Pilot in Derbyshire. This has not, however helped many people
with learning disabilities. There has been a lot of input from
specialist supported employment services to make this happen.
The importance of this extra support is not always recognised.
Difficult to comment without firm proposals.There
must be a safety net for people who really cannot work. Protection
must be available for people who try work but cannot sustain it
at a sufficient number of hours.
Derbyshire County Council is an "Excellent"
council working to improve the lives of local people by delivering
high quality services.
