Work and Pensions Committee Inquiry into welfare to work and the hardest to help – 2015

The attached submission, jointly from Inclusion and NIACE, sets out our view on the welfare to work system and priorities for reform.  We set out that an effective system should have five key objectives:

  1. To maximise employment and earnings for participants
  2. To ensure that participants that do not find work do move closer to employment
  3. To be cost-effective
  4. To be responsive to the economic cycle
  5. To encourage innovation, investment and long-term planning
