New wage incentive scheme to encourage employers to give young disabled people further work opportunities.
A payment of up to £2,275 will be made available for employers who recruit young disabled people through Work Choice - a specialist disability employment program that provides tailored support to help disabled people who have the most complex support needs.
This extra support for young disabled people will sit alongside the recently launched Youth Contract, which is already boosting the employment prospects of this country's young jobseekers.
Minister for Disabled People, Maria Miller said:
