Devolution of welfare-to-work could improve the co-ordination, effectiveness and coverage of local service delivery systems

This means many of the hardest-to-reach jobseekers, such as young people or those with complex needs, are not receiving any government help into work. The challenge is growing rapidly, with a 28 per cent increase in the proportion of unemployed people not claiming benefits in the last 18 months.

Legal action taken to challenge changes to Access to Work scheme
