Goodbye to Flexible New Deal: a review of the programme
CDG is a leading welfare to work charity with nearly 30 years’ experience in helping those who are unemployed find and sustain employment.
Many of the people CDG supports have multiple barriers to employment including a lack of recent work experience, disabilities, health problems and a lack of relevant employability skills.
CDG supported 27,000 people on their journey into work during 2010/11 from 26 centres, running New Deal contracts as a prime provider and Flexible New Deal contracts as a delivery partner in addition to European Social Fund contracts.
The charity is now in a transitional phase preparing to deliver the Work Programme in London East where it has become a prime provider and, with alliance partner MAXIMUS, is also a prime contractor in London West and Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. It is also a delivery partner to Avanta in Sussex.
In partnership with WISE Employment, CDG is a Work Choice prime provider in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, responsible for delivering employment support to people with disabilities.
The charity also works internationally and has formed an organisation based in Australia in partnership with BEST Community Development, a leading third sector welfare to work organisation in that country.
the Expert Volunteer Initiative in 2010. This national scheme aims to sign up 50,000 volunteers across the UK to support the long term unemployed back into work.
CDG would like to thank all of the jobseekers, partners and employers who contributed to this Annual Review.
