THE WORK PROGRAMME

We’re committed to reducing unemployment and successfully moving people into work. We do this through a number of employment schemes, the largest of which is the Work Programme which we deliver on behalf of the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and Jobcentre Plus.

The Work Programme brings together many of the best features of previous back to work programmes and combines them with some new approaches to create one, overarching initiative.

If you take part in the Work Programme, you’ll get better and more varied support than ever before, and it will be tailored to your needs. At A4e, we’ll take the time to understand what assistance you need, and then we’ll help you with any barriers you may have experienced – drug addiction, anger management, health issues, housing, legal problems, debt, a skills gap – even childcare.

The most important thing to remember – if you really want to get into work – is that we will do everything possible to help.

The Work Programme is part-funded by the European Social Fund
