Officials believe there is no reason why the disabled are unable to perform mainstream roles such as sales jobs and, as a result have launched the Access to Work scheme.
This provides the support for small businesses which need to buy specialised equipment to accommodate the potential new staff.
"Work is more than a job - it's one of the best ways to increase independence, life fulfilment, social engagement and is central to someone's identity," said minister for disabled people Esther McVey.
The disability employment rate has increased over the past few years, but Ms McVey believes that more needs to be done.
Under the new scheme, businesses with up to 49 employees no longer need to make contributions towards the extra costs faced by disabled people in work, which could lead to savings of up to £2,300 per staff member who uses the fund.
