ERSA's submission to the 2016 Financial Statement: Making the VfM case for investing in specialist employment support
27 October 2016
Earlier this month ERSA submitted a representation to HM Treasury ahead of the 2016 Financial Statement.
In its representation ERSA made the case for increasing investment in specialist employment support. ERSA highlights how greater investment would help the government meet its commitment to creating an economy that works for everyone whilst goving value for money from the Exchequer's perspective.
The representation examines the need for specialist employment support for jobseekers with disabilities and health conditions, the future trajectory of employment support (particularly in relation to Jobcentre Plus capacity) and the need for specialist support for vulnerable cohorts such as prison leavers and homeless people.
