The Work and Health Programme is a welfare-to-work programme which will be launched in autumn 2017. It's purpose is to provide specialised support for those unemployed for over two years and, on a voluntary basis, to those with health conditions or disabilities. The Programme will be run by service providers awarded contracts by the government. It will take the place of two existing welfare-to-work schemes: The Work Programme; and Work Choice.  However many jobseekers who would previously have been supported by the Work Programme will now receive support directly through Jobcentre Plus rather than the Work and Health Programme.

Funding for the Work and Health Programme will be £130 million a year by 2019/20, including funds devolved to Scotland. Aspects of the Programme will also be devolved to local areas' Jobcentre Plus network.  For more information
