What they don't tell you is why 25% of the referrals are non-starters. That would be of more interest.

Also, some people must have been referred more than once as there are more referrals than individuals.

I was wondering what the 5% LT Unemployed have been told about the Program from there Roaches? No

Main stories
86% of all people starting the Work and Health Programme have a disability or health condition. 9% are from early access groups and 5% are long-term unemployed.

The average number of LTU claimants in each Jobcentre is circa 166.  The expected WHP volumes is circa 4-8 starts pm, per Jobcentre over the duration of the scheme.  

If you are 24 months unemployed, and within the intensive work search regime of the all work-related requirements group in UC, or JSA equivalent claimants it may be helpful to acquaint yourself with the WHP assessment tool and guidance to minimise a potential referral.

The 25% failure to attend rate will be due to people volunteering to be referred, but deciding not to join the programme after having a chat with the provider.

In summary:
Claimants are selected randomly via the tool, because of the limited places.

The key areas:
Mindset
Health
Employability
Skills and qualifications
Your personal circumstances

You will not be referred to the WHP if JCP can meet your needs with current provision and/ or you're already participating in some work related activity.

You are unlikely to be selected if you have few, or no barriers preventing you from securing work.

You are more likely to be selected if you have a health condition/disability that is affecting your ability to find work.
