The New Deal for Disabled People (NDDP) is the major employment programme available to people claiming incapacity benefits. It is a voluntary programme that aims to help people on incapacity benefits move into sustained employment. It is delivered by around 60 Job Brokers, who are a mix of public, private, and voluntary sector organisations. Many provide services in partnership with other organisations. People wishing to participate in the programme must register with a Job Broker (and are referred to in this report as registrants). This report outlines the findings from the first survey of people who have registered to take part in NDDP. The survey achieved 3,014 face-to-face interviews with people who were registered as NDDP customers between May and June 2002. Fieldwork was conducted between October and December 2002 (with a few interviews conducted in January 2003).
