A multimillion-pound scheme to help find work for disabled workers losing their jobs through the closure of Remploy factories has been announced by the Welsh government.

Minister for Education and Skills, Leighton Andrews, said an employer support grant will be offered for up to four years to encourage and support firms to offer jobs in Wales to eligible disabled Remploy workers, at a cost of £2.4 million a year.
