The survey reported here was carried out as part of the extensive programme of evaluation of the New Deal for Disabled People (NDDP). NDDP is a voluntary programme that aims to help people with a disability or health condition move into sustained employment. Around 65 Job Brokers, who are a mix of public, private, and voluntary sector organisations, deliver the programme. The report presents findings from the survey of a third cohort of people who have registered with NDDP, and it examines participants' characteristics, their experiences of, and views on, the programme, including early employment outcomes. The survey design allows comparisons to be made between Pathways to Work pilot areas and non-pilot areas and between new and existing Job Brokers. The survey entailed face-to-face Computer Assisted Personal Interviewing with people who were registered with NDDP between August and October 2004, and fieldwork was conducted between February and May 2005. Interviews were achieved with 2,531 respondents. The evaluative research programme also includes qualitative research with key stakeholders, including clients, staff and employers, a survey of employers, a survey of Job Brokers, and an impact assessment and cost benefit analysis. This report was produced by a team of researchers from the Centre for Research in Social Policy (Loughborough University) and the National Centre for Social Research

The lives of disabled women in Nepal: vulnerability without support

Author:
DHUNGAGA Bishu Maya
Journal article citation:
Disability and Society, 21(2), March 2006, pp.133-146.
Publisher:
Taylor and Francis,

The study examines a broad range of problems faced by physically disabled women. Qualitative interviews with 30 women with physical disabilities (congenital and acquired) were administered to understand various aspects of their lives. The research explores the causes of disability, which include gender discrimination, poverty, an inactive state security system, inadequate family support, negative attitudes and a lack of commitment on the part of government. The available services from non-governmental organizations have been proved to be unsatisfactory and gender biased in terms of training and employment. The importance of disability and its relation to gender has not been recognized by the state.
