Remploy beginning to seek private investment

Remploy Employment Services is now able to seek private investment enabling it to expand. By allowing Remploy to take on significant investment free from government control – as requested by the Remploy Board and as recommended by Liz Sayce in her recent review – they will have the freedom and flexibility to grow the business and help even more disabled people into jobs.

Beth Carruthers, Chief Executive of Remploy said:

"I am delighted by the minister’s announcement today. The decision creates a fantastic opportunity for Remploy to grow and flourish enabling even more disabled people to transform their lives through work."

The commercial process for Remploy Employment Services will be launched in the next week. DWP will have a contractual arrangement with the new company to continue Remploy Employment Services’ national delivery of Work Choice and contracts and agreements which are expected to be transferred as part of this process.
