The Employer Toolkit was developed through consultation with a number of employers - including Barclays Bank, Tottenham Hotspur FC, The National Theatre, Novartis PLC, Leicester City Council and Luton and Dunstable Hospital - who have hired and supported disabled apprentices.

To what extent are people using PBs to purchase support into paid work? 2. What factors encourage and discourage the use of PBs to help people gain or retain a job?
