- Work closely with Social Landlords to support tenants to move from welfare to work;
- Place Jobcentre Plus advisers in the community to deliver a ‘household’ advisory service where co-dependencies on benefits will be investigated; barriers to moving into work explored and action plans developed for engaged households;

- Achieve annually, a set of stretching targets, of engaging with 1000 people and placing 320 into employment with a sustainability target of 80% remaining in employment after 13 weeks.
