Cambridge MP David Howarth has today visited an organisation which helps thousands of disabled people in the East of England every year.

Mr Howarth visited the Papworth Trust which supports and promotes independent living through employment rehabilitation and providing accessible social housing. He commented on the visit:

"I was very interested to hear about how the Papworth Trust helps people with a whole range of disabilities get into work. The Trust provides important skills training as well as helping with the application process and supporting employees and employers at work.
