Employment-related support for ESA and UC claimants
Research about employment-related support for ESA and UC claimants
If you receive Employment Support Allowance or Universal Credit because you aren’t able to work, we would like to hear your thoughts on the help and support you’ve been offered through the Jobcentre Plus - whether or not you access any support at the moment, or have before.
We’re also talking to work coaches and other people who work at the Jobcentre who are involved in delivering the support.
About Employment-related support for ESA and UC claimants
From April 2017, all Employment Support Allowance claimants in the Work Related Activity Group and Universal Credit Claimants have been offered employment-related help and support. The support is provided to help people to prepare for work in the future. Taking part in the support is voluntary.
NatCen has been asked by the Department for Work and Pensions to look at how the employment-related support is being offered and to see how it is being delivered at different Jobcentre Plus locations across England, Wales and Scotland. We want to hear from people who have accessed the employment-related provided as well as from those who chose not to.
The study has been commissioned by the Department for Work and Pensions. All information is confidential and there is no risk to your benefits whether or not you decide to participate, either now or in the future.
