Report

This research study is the first wave of the evaluation of Work Choice, which aims to evaluate the programme against these principles and critical success factors: * a greater focus on those who need specialist support; * less prescription and greater flexibility; * better links between elements of provision; * better consistency and quality of provision; * provision for all types of disability; * more opportunity for the customer to exercise choice and control; * a greater focus on job entries; * improved support for people in either employment or self employment;
