Working Win is changing after October 31, here's all you need to know about what happens next.
What is happening on 31 October?
The trial will not be taking any new participants after 5pm on 31 October. People who want to join the trial must have completed their first appointment by then, so we recommend signing up to the trial by filling in the online referral form or calling 0114 2900 218 as soon as possible.
Your first appointment can take place over Skype, at home, or in a location of your choice. After you have completed the referral form, one of our employment specialists will be in touch to organise a time and location that works for you.
What happens at my first appointment?
At your first appointment our employment specialists will take some details from you, these are to help with the evaluation of the trial. You will then be assigned into the control group or the test group.
Those in the test group will receive a new type of employment support called individual placement support. Those in the control group will be directed to existing employment support services.
Will I still receive support after 31 October 2019?
If you are in the test group you will continue to receive support from your employment specialist for up to 12 months from when you signed up to the trial.
I’m in the control group, what does this mean for me?
To make sure we can effectively evaluate the trial, it is vital those in the control group keep in touch. We will be in touch until October 2020 to find out how you’re doing and your continued input to the trial will be hugely appreciated.
What happens when the trial closes in October 2020?
Following the end of the trial in October 2020, the Government’s Work and Health Unit will evaluate the results. We will expect a full evaluation of the trial by 2022.
What support is available to me if I do not join the trial?
There are a number of employment support programmes available across South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw, more details will be released shortly.
