The Government is committed to maximising employment and levelling up to spread opportunity more equally across the UK. In January the Government announced the Way to Work scheme, which has successfully supported 500,000 jobseekers through the jobcentre and into employment by the end of June. This follows the Plan for Jobs, which successfully supported people negatively affected by the labour market impact of the COVID-19 pandemic – by introducing schemes like Kickstart, Restart, Job Entry Targeted Support and Job Finding Support.
