This report contains the survey results tables and qualitative and quantitative technical appendices to the report on an evaluation of the Support for the Very Long-Term Unemployed (SVLTU) trailblazer scheme, a Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) programme which ran from November 2011 to July 2012. This small-scale trailblazer was designed to test potential support strands for long-term claimants who remain on Jobseekers Allowance (JSA) after completion of the Work Programme. DWP commissioned NatCen Social Research to carry out an evaluation of the SVLTU trailblazer to help develop a better understanding of how best to support very long-term JSA claimants and inform decision-making ahead of potential national delivery of SVLTU in 2013.

These appendices complement the findings from the evaluation, based on a) a quantitative survey and qualitative interviews among claimants taking part in the programme, and b) a programme of qualitative research among Jobcentre Plus staff, external Community Action Programme (CAP) providers, and CAP placement hosts
