Is welfare to work, working well? Improving employment rates for people with disabilities and long-term conditionsIs welfare to work, working well? Improving employment rates for people with disabilities and long-term conditions
This report from The Work Foundation asks: Is Welfare to Work Working Well?
The paper focusses on how current (2016) welfare-to-work provision is working for those whose health may be barrier, and highlighting how support might be improved in its next iteration, e.g. through the proposed ‘Work and Health Programme’.
In reviewing current national and local provision, they identify good practice, and concerns and challenges – with the Work Programme in particular highlighted as not working for people with health conditions – before making recommendations for changes.
