DON'T WRITE ME OFF CAMPAIGN
EDM #2009
Tabled 13 October 2009
2008-09 Session
That this House recognises that eighty per cent. of people with autism on incapacity benefit want to work yet only 15 per cent. are currently in full time work; acknowledges that one third are without access to either benefits or work; further recognises that the system is failing people with autism; agrees that all adults with autism should be supported to work when they can and be able to access benefits when they cannot work; urges the Government to lead the way with a national strategy that meets the employment needs of people with autism; congratulates the National Autistic Society for highlighting these issues in its campaign Don't Write Me Off; and calls for changes to make the system fair for people with autism.
