    Evaluation of Workstart Pilots

    Atkinson J, Meager N | Oct 1994 | Institute for Employment Studies

    Workstart was a wage subsidy programme, targeted at the very long-term unemployed. It provided employers with a subsidy for one year of £2,340 for each long term unemployed person they took on. Four pilot schemes were set up in Spring 1993, in Tyneside, Devon and Cornwall, East Kent and South West London, to test the effectiveness of this approach. This report presents the findings of an evaluation of these pilots, conducted in August 1994 among 399 participating employers in the four pilot areas. This publication is no longer available.
