DWP launches new dedicated support measures to help more autistic people into work this year – Daily Record


The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has announced that thousands of autistic jobseekers across Scotland and the rest of the UK are set to benefit from calmer jobcentre environments and tailored support after 15 were accredited by the National Autistic Society (NAS) following a successful pilot.
