Making Self-Employment Work for Disabled People

With the number of disabled people in self-employment rising by 30 per cent in the last five years alone, IPSE and Community teamed up to answer some of the burning questions about this under-researched sector such as: who are the disabled self-employed, what are their motivations for entering self-employment and what are the key challenges they face? The report concludes with a comprehensive list of policy recommendations for both government and support organisations aiming to help disabled people make a success of this way of working.
