6. Update – IPES
Intensive Personalised Employment Supportwas actually launched by the government in December 2019, as part of their plans to try and reduce the disability employment gap.
Support into employment is probably more important than ever, amidst the economic fallout from the coronavirus pandemic. So I am pleased to update the information we have on Independent Living. At the launch, IPES did not appear to be open to people on benefits – but this is apparently not the case.
Anyone of working age and with a disability or long-term condition can apply, as long as they live in England or Wales.
