JOBS DWP scheme helps 33,000 get work

Have your say

A government-backed jobs scheme has helped more than 33,000 unemployed people in Yorkshire & the Humber find work, and has contributed to the largest drop in long-term unemployment in Britain since 1998, new figures show.

Since 2011, the DWP’s Work Programme has overhauled how claimants with barriers to getting a job are supported into work.
