The UK Rehabilitation Council is looking to appoint a new "executive" in a bid to secure long term funding for the organisation.

Joy Reymond, Unum head of rehabilitation services, told delegates that UKRC had already explored a number of options, including funding from insurance companies and the government.

It comes after Department of Work and Pensions awarded the council an £80,000 grant.

She said: "We have been exploring different ways we can secure sustainable funding, such as asking insurance companies and the government to pay. One of our first tasks will be to appoint an executive who will oversee this task.

Ms Reymond said the council would act as a collaboration between parties interested in rehabilitation.

She added: "There was some anxiety that some organisations would be consumed by the UKRC. It's not been created to replace the Case Management Society or the Vocational Rehabilitation Association, it's here to work with them."
