The Chancellor has confirmed that he would set aside £400m for musculoskeletal and mental health support.
According to Hunt, a £3m pilot programme will help people with special needs make the transition into the workforce.
The government is releasing a white paper today on the reform of disability benefits.
According to the Chancellor, the work capability assessment would be eliminated, allowing disabled individuals to look for employment without worrying about losing their support.
To assist disabled people in finding employment, a new project dubbed “universal support” will be launched. The programme could assist up to 50,000 people annually and will cost up to £4,000 per person, according to Hunt.
