The Work Programme: employment support
The Work Programme is a Government, initiative committed to fighting poverty; supporting the most vulnerable and helping people break the cycle of benefit dependency. NDDT delivers the Work Programme on behalf of A4e and Serco Welfare to Work, for the Job Centre Plus, Department of Work Skills and Pensions.
Our advisors help customers to remove barriers to employment, gain focus and direction in their search for employment all the time concentrating on what they can do, not what they can’t.
