Description: The Department’s Help to Work Package supports the Government’s principle that the longer a jobseeker remains on Jobseeker’s Allowance or Universal Credit (for claimants subject to intensive work search requirements), the more the Department will expect of them to look for and secure suitable employment. A new package of Help to Work measures went live in every Jobcentre by 31 December 2014. One third of claimants returning from the Work Programme will be allocated to one of the following 3 elements depending on individual need: • Mandatory Intervention Regime (MIR) – coaches have more time to spend with claimants, and can use other support such as referral to training, local provision and using the flexible support fund. This will be a continuous period until the claimants’ barriers to employment have been addressed; claimants who have completed the other two elements will also be referred back to MIR. • Daily Work Search Reviews – a period of 4-13 weeks of daily activity at the Jobcentre. • Community Work Placements – a work placement that is of benefit to the community for up to 30 hours per week, and up to 10 hours of job-search activity.
DCA (RAG): Amber
