We commissioned and funded the Work Research Centre to conduct research on international good practice in Vocational Rehabilitation. This work contributed to the fourth strategic priority of the Comprehensive Employment Strategy for People with Disabilities which is 'To promote job retention and re-entry into work'.
The main characteristic shared by people with disabilities across the countries examined is that their disabling conditions have resulted in reduced work capacity and they require specialist interventions and supports to access, maintain or return to employment.
