ESF/DWP Funding for Families with Multiple Problems

At the end of June 2011 the Department for Work and Pensions issued Invitations to Tender (ITTs) through the Employment Framework for a co-financed programme to tackle a culture of worklessness by progressing families with multiple problems closer to employment.

This will be delivered in 12 Contract Package Areas (CPAs) with one prime to be contracted per CPA, with an overall budget of £200m over three years. We are currently discussing opportunities for third sector organisations to deliver services under this contract and will publish further details shortly.
