The Congress was a specific action in A Fairer Scotland for Disabled People, the delivery plan we published in December 2016.
The plan states that we will take action to at least halve the employment gap between disabled people and the rest of the working population, that we will offer the highest level of financial support to disabled Modern Apprentices and that we will pilot a work experience programme specifically for young disabled people.
And we are making real, meaningful progress.
We have launched Fair Start Scotland, our new devolved and wholly voluntary employment support service and have committed an additional £20m per annum over the next three years to this service over and above the funding received from the UK Government.
