The report focuses upon the participant characteristics and experiences of the Communities for Work (CfW) and Communities for Work Plus (CfW+) programmes, since their inception in 2015 and 2018 respectively up until April 2023.

The aim of the evaluation is to provide evidence about the impact of the CfW and CfW+ programmes. This report is one of a series of four reports that covers the evaluation. 

The report focuses upon participant experiences and addresses the following objectives:

  • to assess the extent to which the programmes engaged individuals from the priority groups they set out to engage.
  • to compare outcomes for individuals across different demographic groups and sub-groups, as defined by the target groups for the programmes.
  • to review whether the rationale for targeting specific groups and geographies was appropriate for current and future community employability programmes. 
  • to review the extent to which the delivery models met the needs of specific groups. 
  • to review how new elements of the CfW and CfW+ programme, such as the ‘in work support element’ were delivered and contributed to the achievement of the programmes’ aims and objectives.
