The Universal Credit system collects data on claimant’s disabilities but as this is voluntary we do not currently record specific types of disability or health condition of Kickstart participants. While we do plan to evaluate the experiences of disabled people participating in Kickstart, it will not be possible to quantify specific types of disability owing to the small sample sizes involved.
