The Intensive Activity Programme (IAP) was a trial of support and activities that some benefit claimants had to complete within 21 days of making a new claim. It was designed to help them find work sooner.

For six months from spring 2015 the IAP was implemented by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) as a randomised controlled trial across seven Jobcentre Plus offices to fully assess its impact, as well as claimant and staff experiences of the programme.

The findings presented in this report are from longitudinal in-depth interviews with JSA claimants and observations of IAP delivery across three participating Jobcentre Plus offices.
