MP welcomes employment support package

Steve Brine has welcomed new that the Department for Work and Pensions have introduced the Small Employer Offer (SEO), a unique package of employment support for both employers and employees, forming a key part of the government's aim to reduce the Disability Employment Gap.

It is a voluntary programme that has been designed to increase local job opportunities for Employment and Support Allowance and Universal Credit claimants who have a Limited Capability for Work, by promoting the employment of disabled people amongst small employers and by encouraging local employers to become Disability Confident.

Steve Brine said: "I know they want to help small local employers to employ disabled people and people with health conditions, so if you're a business with 25 or fewer employees, they can give you extra support through Jobcentre Plus."

Steve Brine: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Wilson—I believe it is the first time that we have danced in such a way. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Crawley (Henry Smith) on securing this debate on an issue that I know he feels passionately about, and I commend him for his work chairing the all-party group. We all come to the House with our motivations and...
