The ‘In to Work’ programme supports those who are furthest from the labour market, including those out of work for an extended period, to tackle barriers that prevent people from moving in to sustainable employment.
Individuals must be unemployed or economically inactive and fall into one or more of the following categories:
- Long term benefit claimants such as JSA or ESA or any other unemployment benefit (26+ weeks)
- Individuals with a self-declared mental health condition
- Lone parents
- People with caring responsibilities including unpaid carers
- Ethnic minorities
- Migrant workers
- Ex-service personnel
- Those with housing / homelessness issues
- Unemployed older workers aged over 50
- Care leavers
- Young unemployed / workless aged 18-24
