New Deal 50 plus was part of the Government's welfare to work initiative, directed towards people aged 50 and over who had been out of work for six months or more and wished to return to employment.

This included older people claiming Jobseekers Allowance, those claiming other benefits, those with a disability or long term illness, and the dependent partners of people on these benefits.

This report draws on focus groups with New Deal 50 plus clients conducted in four Pathfinder areas: Dorset, City Pride (Manchester), Edinburgh East and Midlothian, and the Black Country.
