Don't stop me now: supporting young people with chronic conditions from education to employment

Don't stop me now: supporting young people with chronic conditions from education to employment

Zofia Bajorek, Victoria Donnaloja and Libby McEnhill
23 February 2016

‘The sixth policy paper from the Health and Work Policy Unit calls for greater support in the transition from education to employment to be offered to young people, but particularly to those who face additional barriers such as chronic health conditions

As ‘good work’ is often good for health, and many young people with chronic conditions can, and want to work, the paper sets out the case and offers recommendations to government for implementing a bolder and more ambitious approach to supporting transitions from education into employment.

Recommendations are made in four main areas:

  • Careers Advice
  • Vocational Education
  • Work Experience
  • Health-related initiatives.
