The Public Sector Equality Duty seeks to advance equality of opportunity for the groups named in the Act.   Disabled Londoners are among a number of disadvantaged groups benefitting from skills and employment support delivered through European Social Fund provision.  One such programme has supported 793 Londoners since 2012, with 304 beneficiaries achieving an employment, education or training outcome. Remploy, one of the providers delivering the programme, has supported 410 Londoners in that time including 161 into employment, education or training.
