NDTi Insights - Commissioning of employment support

Year of Publication: 

This publication summarises the learning from work undertaken by NDTi around supporting people with learning disabilities and people with mental health problems into paid work. Conclusions include that there is:

  • An overall weakness in the planning and commissioning processes
  • Limited understanding amongst many commissioners of the evidence base around what works
  • Inadequate actions to expand the market for employment supports
  • A failure to link employment supports to the growth of individual budgets.
