Richard Branson, Virgin Group Founder, is backing a partnership to help support one million disabled people into work.

Richard is supporting ‘Work With Me’, a new three-year initiative by Virgin Media and the disability charity, Scope, to understand and tackle the barriers disabled people face getting into and staying in work.

Virgin Media is funding Scope’s new digital employment support service for disabled people. The partnership ambition is to reach one million disabled people with employment information and support by the end of 2020, so they can get into work, stay in work and realise their career ambitions.

Richard, who has dyslexia, is lending his voice to the campaign which is also inviting members of the public, employers and government to work together to address these issues more quickly.
