Jobcentre Plus Outreach

Since October 2009 Jobcentre Plus have been trialling an outreach service in Greenwich, East Durham and Liverpool to reach more people in the community, with the view to helping people into work and overcoming intergenerational unemployment.  There doesn't appear to be any facts and figures to show how successful these pilots have been, but JCP are now ploughing an additional £12m into extending this service to "deprived estates" across the country.  

New Outreach teams are being launched in every Jobcentre Plus region based in the following JCP districts: 

  • Norfolk
  • Nottinghamshire
  • North and North East London
  • Lambeth, Southwark and Wandsworth
  • Northumbria
  • Greater Manchester East and West
  • Ayrshire, Dumfries, Galloway and Inverclyde
  • Kent
  • West of England
  • North and Mid Wales
  • Staffordshire
  • North East Yorkshire and the Humber
  • South Yorkshire
  • South London
  • South Tyne and Wear Valley
  • Merseyside

The teams will have the freedom to decide how to meet the needs of their catchment area and will be working with local authorities, community organisations, housing associations and other similar organisations to link up with people who may not access the advice and guidance already available in Jobcentres.
