The Government confirmed in March 2012 that it accepted the recommendations in the Sayce Review, to focus resources on tailored personalised support for individuals through services like Access to Work, rather than “one size fits all” institutions and programmes, so that we can significantly increase the number of disabled people that could be supported to access the labour market. The Sayce recommendations on Remploy have been implemented.

The Written Statement on Access to Work published on 12th March sets out proposals to address two key recommendations of Liz Sayce with respect to developing online functionality and personal budgets.
