Personal Support Programme evaluation: interim report

18 Nov 2005
Description

Interim findings suggest that the Personal Support Programme (PSP) is a vital program for assisting people with multiple non-vocational barriers to employment, but that several factors reduce its effectiveness – notably, inadequate funding to help clients access services such as education and counselling. While PSP’s recognition that some participants cannot engage in employment-related activities before addressing personal barriers is important, the lack of appropriate employment assistance integrated with personal support is an unfortunate limitation for those participants who feel ready to look for work.
