Designing Future Welfare to Work Provision in London

released 13 January 2015

2015 will see a shift in the welfare to work landscape. A general election is on the horizon, a new Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) Commissioning Strategy is in play, the London Growth Deal pilots have been launched and discussions are starting on the shape of the new Work Programme. Consequently, 2015 is a clear opportunity for London boroughs to influence the nature of welfare to work provision in the capital. This briefing uses the most recent Work Programme statistics to discuss why it is so critical that boroughs gain greater control over employment support and outlines the up and coming opportunities to do this.

Efficiency and Reform in the Next Parliament

released 08 January 2015

The recent publication of a report by government into efficiency and reform in the next Parliament provides an overview of its proposals to transform service delivery across the public sector and presents an opportunity to reflect on the implications such initiatives are likely to have on London boroughs within the context of significant reductions in core funding. With one eye on London Councils' continuing work to secure greater devolution for the capital, this briefing outlines the government's thinking and highlights the issues for boroughs.
