FREE Event for West London Voluntary and Community Groups who want to be involved in the Work and Health Programme

The Work & Health Programme is currently being commissioned by the London Councils and will replace the Work Programme and Work Choice. The programme represents an exciting opportunity to tackle deep-seated issues within our welfare system, but its arrival coincides with a unique set of challenges:

  • WHP must bring about the stronger integration of local services, particularly in healthcare; but how is this alignment best achieved in practicality?
  • The programme must meet the needs of a changing local landscape, with a greater focus on devolution, the productivity of the local economy and local strategic employment priorities; but what does such a scenario look like?
  • And how can we best work together to meet skills shortages and achieve the government’s stated intention of halving the gap in employment between disabled and non-disabled people?

 APM are inviting local interested parties to an event about the London Work & Health that is being held at the Lido Centre, West Ealing:

 Lido Centre, 63 Mattock Lane London, W13 9LA

 Wednesday 22nd March 13:00 – 15:00

 Lunch will be provided at 13:00 followed the CEO of APM Alan Cave talking about Work & Health Programme and finding what the local views are and how we can all work together.

 Please RSVP as numbers will be limited therefore only one person from each organisation should attend but if there is enough interest we could always host another event.

Notes on Alan Cave

Alan Cave, CEO of APM and previously DWP’s Commissioning Director will address these and other questions through a facilitated discussion of how you can get the most from the Work and Health Programme.

Previously Alan led the delivery of the £5 billion Work Programme, the biggest UK payment-by-results public service programme and a central pillar of UK public sector reform.

He was appointed to lead the cross-Government body on Payment by Results and Social Finance. In this time he became the external face of Government in this sector, building high-trust but demanding relationships with major suppliers, and other key stakeholders, including other parts of the public sector, Parliamentary Select Committees, overseas Governments, trade bodies, and lobby groups.
