In this report, based on the findings of the AHRC-funded In the Making project, we offer evidence that digital fabrication can support the government in closing the disability employment gap in the following ways: • Digital fabrication technologies and facilities offer opportunities to create skills amongst the disabled community that might support them in finding work or in becoming entrepreneurs. • Engaging in digital fabrication has major inclusion and wellbeing benefits for disabled people that can also support them in joining the workforce. • Digital fabrication can also support disabled people in creating or modifying their own assistive technologies, which can further support them in playing a productive role in society.
