Looking for work can be twice as hard if you are disabled or have a health condition. In Glasgow, only 45% of disabled people aged 16-65 are in work, compared to 67% of our non-disabled peers – this is the lowest in Scotland, where on average 49% of disabled people are in work, compared to 81.6% of our non-disabled peers.

Barriers such as inaccessible buildings, transport and information can make this harder.
