This report, commissioned by Peabody, provides insights into the lives of individuals living in social housing, focusing on the experiences of disabled Londoners in the labour market. Analysis in the reports reveals a substantial “disability pay gap” in the capital, with disabled Londoners more than twice as likely to be unemployed as those without a disability. This raises questions on the extent to which the capital’s businesses are offering good job and promotion opportunities to those with disabilities.
The report concludes that more needs to be done to address the disability pay gap – in the UK and elsewhere. As a “quick win”, it suggests that large companies should be required to report their disability pay gaps to increase social pressure on businesses to do more to provide equal opportunities in the workplace.
