New position for Penny Mordaunt

Penny Mordaunt, who held the role of Minister of State for Disabled People from July 2016, has been promoted to the cabinet as International Development Secretary. In her time as Minister for Disabled People, Penny’s agenda included the Disability Confidence scheme and encouraging employers to take action in reducing the employment gap by 2020. Penny has been a great supporter of RIDI, most recently talking at our first ever Conference, and we wish her all the best in her new position. Replacing Penny is Sarah Newton MP for Truro and Falmouth and we look forward to working closely with her in the future.
