Lane P, Foster R, Gardiner L, Lanceley L, Purvis A | Research Report 832 | Department for Work and Pensions | May 2013

This is the second in a series of research reports aiming to evaluate the Work Programme in terms of:

  • the way it is commissioned
  • how it is delivered
  • how claimants experience support
  • whether it leads to additional employment outcomes.

This research is part of a comprehensive evaluation of the Work Programme, commissioned in 2011 to provide an independent assessment of delivery and performance.
