Evaluation of New Deal 50 plus - Research with Individuals (Wave 2)

Atkinson J | Research Report ESR92 | Employment Service | Sep 2001

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 presents findings of a telephone survey of 503 participants in New Deal 50 plus undertaken in February 2001. Half the respondents (the re-contacts) had taken part in a survey six months previously, and were now being followed up; the other half (the new contacts) had joined the programme during those six months.
