4 key barriers to implementation of IPS
• fear on the part of professionals, individuals
and their families;
• a culture of low expectations;
• a failure to provide the support that we know
• the global ‘credit crunch’ recession.
The suggestion to engage with employment was a key
part of my recovery. If I’d waited until I felt ready to go to
work I might still be waiting, but since Dr D, and my OT
believed I could benefit from talking to the employment
specialist, then I was willing to try.
Person using employment support
• Tony Wilson, Policy Director at Inclusion
• ‘The Work Programme …… still a long way below
expectations for those who are on benefit because of a
health condition or disability. For this latter group, just
one in 25 participants is getting into sustained
employment within a year. There is no sign of any
improvement in performance for these participants,
and the nature of the Work Programme means that
lower employment is leading to fewer “outcome”
payments and in turn less funding being made
available. The government needs to look urgently at its
targets and funding rules for these groups.’
