This research explored the implementation and delivery of the four strands of the Six Month Offer (6M0). An initial survey was undertaken across Great Britain, in March/April 2010, nearly a year after implementation in April 2009, to help understand the impact of these measures on Jobcentre Plus claimants. A further longitudinal survey was carried out in March/April 2011 to help understand the status, by strand, of a subset of claimants from the initial survey in addition to medium term job sustainability.
This is the third in a series of reports from the Support for Newly Unemployed (SNU) and 6MO research project which aims to establish the extent to which SNU and 6MO lead to additional claimant employment outcomes.
