The Rethinking Incapacity project

What does it mean to say that someone is ‘incapacitated’ – that is, they are not in paid work because of their ill-health or disability?

The ‘Rethinking Incapacity’ project aims to help policymakers create a better system of incapacity assessment – not just tinkering around the edges of the current system, but going back to think about what ‘incapacity’ actually means, and building up a fair and workable system from there. You can find out more about the project here.

The first report from the project was released in March 2015 – you can read the report, and read the accompanying blog.
