Abstract

Will the government’s new Help to Work scheme, recently launched, actually help people back into work? The evidence suggest that the placement element is ineffective. On the other hand, those receiving intensive support, provided as part of this scheme, may experience changes in behaviour that lead to improved job outcomes in the months after the end of the scheme. Jenny Gulliford and Beth Foley provide 10 concerns and recommendations.
