How can the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) provide a vibrant Health and Work programme whilst balancing the competing demands of cost, quality and risk shift?
Drawing on interviews with 20 expert stakeholders from across government, the private sector and charities, this paper presents practical recommendations on how the DWP can achieve its aims and deliver value for money.
This paper takes into consideration lessons learnt from previous government programmes, including welfare-to-work services and the Coalition Government’s Transforming Rehabilitation.
