WHP and the EU

WHP and the EU Empty WHP and the EU

The Work and Health Programme is part funded by the European Social Fund of the EU.

As such it has to conform and comply with many EU bodies, rules and regulations.

Withdrawal from the EU in just over a month is now virtually assured.

Has anyone come across any details or information from government sources about what is to replace that funding and those rules and regulations and what will be the implications of alternatives for claimants and for providers?

Does all WHP documents have to be trashed and replaced with new documents with the EU logo and all references to the EU and the Human Rights Convention removed?

Unless the shortfall in funding is made up and alternative operational processes put in place can the WHP legally function in its current form?

The Government has committed to establishing the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF) to replace the ESF and other EU Structural Investment Funds. The UKSPF aims to ‘reduce inequalities between communities across our four nations, once we have left the European Union and EU Structural Funds’.

https://ersa.org.uk/media/news/statement-result-2019-general-election

We are still waiting for assurances from the Government that the planned UK Shared Prosperity Fund will have ringfenced funding for Employment and Skills, that this money will not be less than what would have been received if we had remained in the EU, and that the new system will be more flexible and less bureaucratic.

From what I can glean off Google funding for current projects will last until the end of 2020.

Managed to dig up a few details.

SR confirmed funding rising in England to at least £130 million a year by 2019/20 for the new Work and Health programme. Employment related spending in Scotland is devolved, they have their own programmes.  (No idea who or what SR is).

The European Social Fund contribution for England varies between 50% and 60% according to region. Currently expected to expire Dec 2020.

For anyone into spreadsheets a detailed breakdown can be studied at this link:
