|Description: ||The Work and Health Programme (WHP) replaces the Work Programme and Work Choice Programme. WHP will design, procure and implement a new contracted employment provision that from November 2017 will aim to transform the lives of people with disabilities and the long term unemployed.
WHP is expected to cost around £525m, including relatively modest investment costs of £10m. Over the life of the programme it will deliver economic benefits of over £130m each year on average. For every £1 invested in WHP, we estimate the economic benefit to be £1.40. |
