About this guide

Our focus is on the 50+ jobseeker because the success rate of back to work support with this age group has not been as good as with other ages.

Of course, this is not always the case. There are success stories where helpful support has made the difference to someone's life.

This is where you come in. It is why your job is so important.


This site is for help and information only. It is not meant as an authoritative guide. It is not meant as an authoritative statement of the law, and future changes in the law and other programmes and initiatives could make it less accurate at times. TAEN, the Department for Work and Pensions and the European Social Fund take no responsibility for your use of the information. You should always take professional advice on any specific legal or financial matter.
