ACTION NEEDED ON UNEMPLOYMENT AMONGST ADULTS WITH AUTISM SPECTRUM CONDITIONS

3rd July 2019

The UK Government and employers need to do more to help people with Autism Spectrum Conditions get into work and understand the condition. ASCs have so much to offer.

Welfare staff and the system as a whole also need to be more understanding of the condition so ASCs are not discriminated against and left behind.

My Asks:
❓What steps will UK Gov take to close autism employment gap;
❓commit to ensuring Jobcentre staff have proper autism training;
❓commit to recording autism in labour force survey to measure progress;
❓commit to raising awareness of the autism friendly employer award?
