Is self employment: the better option for people with disabilites?

Thanks to Chris and our Careers Team @ BU for this relevant website & blog about the employment progress made with the increasing number of people with disabilities setting up their own businesses and entering self-employment.

Self-employment offers obvious advantages for many people with disabilities. This is becoming increasingly self-evident as the number of disabled entrepreneurs increases and their achievements are becoming more widely known and celebrated.
