This is the latest release
The programme is a tackling worklessness intervention. It is designed to respond to the Welsh Government’s Tackling Poverty Action Plan 2013. More specifically, to a commitment to provide 5,000 training and employment opportunities to people in long-term workless households by the end of 2017.
Lift operates in nine delivery areas based on twelve Communities First Clusters across Wales. In each delivery area, small teams of job brokers have been recruited to engage working age adults living in long-term workless households.
The EvaluationThe evaluation had two overarching aims:
- to assess how the programme has been seen set up in each of the nine delivery areas and how it is being operated.
- to provide an indication of its effectiveness in helping participants to find work or to undergo activities that significantly boost their job prospects.
