We have made this call for evidence because DWP is looking to commission employment focused provision for families with multiple problems, supported through its European Social Fund Co-financing arrangements. Funding for the provision is limited to England. The funds available across the English regions may vary in scale.  

It is our intention that Local Authorities will be the primary route to identify families who would benefit from the provision, and it is likely that providers and Local Authorities would work closely together.

We would welcome input on a number of areas of policy design.

This call for evidence will close on 6 May 2011. We will publish a response document, setting out the chief points raised, later in May.

This call for evidence is specifically aimed at:

  • Local Authorities
  • other interested parties
