Employment company Remploy says it's seen a 7% increase in the number of jobs created in Wales, over the last 12 months.

Almost 3,900 jobs were created in the last year, for disabled and disadvantaged people.

Figures to the end of March show strong continued growth in the numbers of people supported into work, particularly those with more severe disabilities or health conditions.

Overall in the UK, Remploy delivered 18,500 jobs in 2013-14, an increase of 4% compared to the previous year.

Sian Morgan, Remploy's Director for Wales, said: "We listen to employers' needs and help them to better understand and enjoy the benefits of employing disabled people, in effect transforming their businesses.

"As a result we achieve the Remploy mission as a social business of helping to transform the lives of tens of thousands of disabled people through sustainable employment."
