Atkinson J, Dewson S, Kodz J | Research Report ESR68 | Employment Service | Mar 2001

New Deal 50 plus was a voluntary programme for unemployed and economically inactive people aged 50 and over, who had been out of work for six months or more. This research was conducted during September and October 2000, some six months after ND 50 plus was rolled out nationally.

It draws on interviews with ES and BA staff in four areas (Newcastle & South Tyneside, Southwark, Eastbourne & Hastings, and North Derbyshire). It builds on an earlier study of four Pathfinder areas.
