The Routes to Work pilot was a DWP Innovation Pilot which provided holistic support from a range of service providers for those unemployed or economically inactive individuals, across the Combined Authority area. The support included many elements, with the primary focus being the individual. It provided the opportunity to identify and address multiple barriers that some people face when trying to access work and provided innovative solutions which didn’t just focus on providing training.
The pilot was monitored by the Combined Authority and delivered by the five Tees Valley Local Authorities.
The Tees Valley Routes to Work programme was extended for an additional 12 months due to its success in its first three years. The Pilot programme supported unemployed people across the region until 31st March 2022.
The evaluation of the Pilot is continuing with the final evaluation report due to be published in June 2022.
