Consultation description

We made this call for evidence because the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) is looking to commission employment-focused provision for families with multiple problems, supported through its European Social Fund Co-financing arrangements. Funding for the provision is limited to England. The funds available across the English regions may vary in scale.  

We intend local authorities to be the primary route to identify families who would benefit from the provision, and it is likely that providers and local authorities would work closely together.

We welcomed input on a number of areas of policy design.

This call for evidence was specifically aimed at local authorities and other interested parties.
