The Welsh Government (WG) commissioned the Institute for Employment Studies (IES) to lead a review of its pilot which introduced Jobcentre Plus-led Advisory services into Integrated Children’s Centres in Communities First (CF) areas. The pilot was known as the Employment Services in Integrated Children’s Centres (ESICC). The project was co-funded by Communities First and Jobcentre Plus (JCP). IES had experience of evaluating the Work-Focused Services in the Children’s Centres Pilot in England.

This report comprises findings from the evaluation to provide information to the Welsh Government (WG) on the progress and achievements of the ESICC pilot.
