Media responses to our Taking Control report

Mon,7 October 2013

There has been a great deal of media interest in our new report 'Taking Control of Employment Support'

The report argues that the government's huge Work Programme is failing disabled people (with at least an 88% failure rate) and is very poor value for money.

The report also found that 63% of those it surveyed said the government support they received did not help them get a job.

The BBC has reported the key findings of the report together with a response from a ‘spokesman for the DWP’.
