DWP has published changes to the procurement process for the Work and Health Programme and issued a revised indicative timetable for the process.

DWP has issued the following statement on the Bravo Solution website:

Thank you for your interest in the Work and Health Programme. DWP is very keen to work with the market and listen to your views, ensuring that we in are in a position to create the most suitable and effective programme for the customer group.

The Local Government Association has issued a press release calling on the Government to ensure it avoids repeating the mistakes of its flagship Work Programme when it's replaced by new Work and Health Programme (WHP). Thousands more disadvantaged jobseekers and people with disabilities and health conditions would be supported into work if funding and responsibility for the new Work and Health Programme (WHP) is devolved to all local areas, councils say today.
