Work and Health Programme statistics

Official experimental statistics on the Work and Health Programme.

The Work and Health Programme (WHP) predominantly helps disabled people, as well as the long-term unemployed and certain other priority groups (known as early access groups) to enter into and stay in work.

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

  • referrals to WHP
  • starts to WHP
  • job outcomes (added in May 2019)
  • first earnings from employment (added in February 2020)

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