Work and Health Programme
On 30 January 2017, the Secretary of State for Work & Pensions announced the devolution of the new Work and Health Programme in London, to be commissioned through four sub-regional contracts.
The South London programme will support people who have been out of work for over 2 years or who face particular health or disability-related challenges to get jobs and will start in March 2018.
Through devolution we will be able to:
- increase the total value of the programme in our area, by match-funding it with ESF funding; and
- secure integration of the Work and Health Programme with other services and offers locally.
Croydon is the accountable body for the SLP Work and Health Programme.
