Tony Wilson, Learning and Work Institute, plus Anne Gregory, PublicCo joined us to discuss preparing Work and Health Programme bids.
The new Work and Health programme has the ambition to halve the disability employment gap, but at a much reduced budget.
Successful organisations will need a clear and persuasive offer demonstrating how they will support more unemployed people into work.
Critical to the success of the Work and Health programme will be the role of the frontline adviser. As well as needing an understanding of the changing welfare system and the different levels of in-work benefits, the adviser will also need to coach customers who may have barriers to work. Providers who can offer support that goes beyond what is routinely available to jobseekers will be more successful at winning and delivering the new contracts.
Listen back to hear:
- What DWP are looking for
- How to make your business case stack up
- How to target support to help you help more people
Learning and Work Institute launched their new financial model for the Work and Health Programme. The model will provide insight and enable providers to forecast income, expenditure and performance in different scenarios.
