Work and Pensions Select Committee - ERSA provides evidence on the Restart Programme (16 December)
The Restart Programme was announced on 25 November in the SR20 as part of a package of £3.7 billion additional funding allocated to support frontline services and to enable DWP to deliver on July’s Plan for Jobs to support people back into work. The Restart programme will provide intensive and tailored support to over 1 million unemployed people and help them find work in England and Wales, with approximately £400million investment in 2021-22. The first step in a £2.9 billion three-year programme.
