To mark Employability Day 2020, Sara Redmond spoke to David Cameron and Alistair Kerr about supported employment during COVID-19.

Supported employment services across Scotland support people to prepare for, and carry out work across the country. Thousands of people, often considered furthest from the labour market, use supported employment to find and sustain employment every year.

  • Innovative practice to ensure support has continued.
