Work Programme statistics June 2016

DWP published their latest statistics on the Work Programme at 9.30 am on 23rd June 2016.

L&W will be producing its analysis on Friday 24th. We had a "that's funny" moment while going through the DWP stats. DWP responded with "good catch", so their computers are running hot. The issue mainly relates to 2-year and overall performance by payment group (which doesn't form part of the main DWP release, it's supplementary material).

Work and Health Programme PIN published

DWP has published the 'Prior Information Notice' or PIN for the Work and Health Programme on the EU central noticeboard. Edited extracts below. More on the actual notice.

New financial results from Providence (Ingeus)

The Providence Service Corporation (which owns Ingeus) reported its fourth quarter 2015 and full year 2015 results on 10th March 2016.
