How Do Social Firms Sit Within The Spectrum Of Employment Provision For Disabled People?

How Do Social Firms Sit Within The Spectrum Of Employment Provision For Disabled People?

The spectrum of employment provision for disabled people can be confusing. Social Firms UK has put together a simple table to explain the difference between sheltered workshops, supported businesses, open supported employment and Social Firms. (NB. Social Firms are set up to provide employment for people severely disadvantaged in the labour market. This includes for example the homeless and ex-substance mis-users etc, not only disabled people. However, this table only refers to disabled people because there is not the same kind of spectrum of sheltered workshops/supported businesses for these other types of severe disadvantage in the labour market.)

The table can be found in the Resource Centre of this website at:
