This report has been co-authored by eleven organisations/ individuals including IES, and sets out proposals for providing immediate ‘Into Work’ support for the newly unemployed and those at risk of redundancy as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.  Specifically it calls for:

  • Support for everyone who needs advice to find new work – including those unemployed, at risk of redundancy and self-employed people;
  • A universal offer of initial support from an employment adviser, signposting to further support, and access to advice and tools for jobsearch and careers guidance; and
  • Targeted re-training and skills support to help people to change careers, upskill to fill new jobs, and invest in their own learning.
