Work and Health Programme statistics

Official experimental statistics on the Work and Health Programme.

The Work and Health Programme (WHP) primarily helps people who have a disability or health condition, as well as the long-term unemployed and certain other priority groups find and keep a job.

From November 2018, the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has released experimental statistics about WHP. These will provide information on a regular basis about the number of:

  • referrals to WHP
  • starts to WHP

Find announcements on the future releases of WHP statistics in the statistics calendar.
