The St Mungo’s Workwise service provides
employment and training services. The service is primarily targeted
at those in rented housing (Council tenants, private sector tenants
and homeless in temporary accommodation) who are in receipt of
benefits and adversely affected by welfare reforms.
Welfare reforms including the Size Criteria, Benefit Cap and Universal Credit. The proposed report is requesting for the service to be extended from 1st of May 2021 to 29th of April 2022. The service has been very successful in supporting Lambeth residents into sustained employment and training opportunities and has been instrumental in assisting Lambeth residents who have been furloughed or lost their jobs due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The cumulative value of the contracts from February 2015 to April 2021 is £560,295.89. A further extension for the 2021/22 financial year will increase that value by a further £100,000.
