Leonard Cheshire, the disability charity, has used the fifth anniversary of its Workability scheme to criticise those businesses which have still not made their workplaces accessible to disabled employees.
The Workability scheme provides training and computers to help disabled people into work placements.
At a meeting in Parliament last week to mark the anniversary, the charity told MPs that there are more than a million unemployed disabled people who want work.
"This is slow progress, particularly as it will become law for all businesses to be fully accessible by October 2004," said a spokesperson. "An attitude shift is required among employers."
The Workability scheme has found work placements for more than 1,000 disabled people since it was launched.
The charity also works with Totaljobs.com and Microsoft to run jobability.com, a web site for disabled jobseekers.
