Select Committee on Work and Pensions Written Evidence

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.
