About the event
The waiting is very nearly over. After nearly a year of discussion, details and delays, the tender documents for the Work and Health Programme are due out. Then it will be up to service providers, partners and local areas to put together their teams and submit their first-stage responses. This half day event is timed to follow immediately the expected release of DWP documentation and is focused squarely on the key things that you need to know in order to successfully deliver the new programme.
With contributions from leading experts in programme design and delivery; national and local government; and service providers across the public, private and voluntary sectors; this will be a must-attend event for anyone looking to get involved in the new programme.
