Work and Health Programme Job Entry: Targeted Support service

Coronavirus (Covid-19) important update

The Work and Health Programme Job Entry: Targeted Support service will continue to operate.

However, we have taken the decision to suspend all face-to-face delivery until further notice and close our offices to avoid any non-essential social interaction.

Please do not visit your local office or delivery site.

We will continue to support all service users via phone, video and email.

If you have any questions, please call or email your Onboarding advisor or usual point of contact.

The Department for Work and Pensions has provided guidance on Coronavirus support for benefit claimants, employees and employers. You can find it here.
