  • DEAs support Work Coaches and Jobcentre colleagues in situations where claimants present with complex employment circumstances involving health and disability issues. Support to Work Coaches include upskilling, case conferencing and facilitating three-way conversations with claimants.
  • DEAs are not based in Youth Hubs but support Youth Hub Work Coaches and Youth Employability Coaches.
