    News/Events Category: Employability

    A £53 million initiative to help 25,000 long-term sick and disabled people into work has been launched as part of the Government's Universal Support programme.

    Jobcentre Work Coaches and contracted providers will identify and refer participants, with the goal of helping 25,000 people move towards employment by September 2024. This programme, part of the broader Universal Support initiative, focusses on overcoming complex employment barriers.

    Participants will receive personalised support, connecting them with suitable employers and providing in-work assistance. Universal Support will expand to help at least 50,000 people yearly by 2025-26, addressing health, debt, and workplace adjustments. 
    For full details about the programme please see the press release.
