The Medium-Term Effects of Compulsory Participation in ONE: A Short Report
In-House Report No. 87By Hazel Green and Helen Connolly
This short report is part of the ONE client survey series, which aims to examine the experiences of ONE clients and evaluate the labour market impact of ONE. Two separate samples of jobseekers, sick or disabled clients and lone parents in ONE pilot areas and their matched control areas were interviewed twice, six months apart. Reports of the first three waves of interviewing have been published as DSS Research Report No. 126, DWP Research Report No. 149, and DWP Research Report No. 156. This short report describes clients' experiences of the ONE service up to ten months after they began claiming during the period after full-participation was introduced.
The ONE client survey research was carried out by the Office for National Statistics, the Policy Studies Institute, and the British Market Research Bureau International. The research was commissioned by the Department of Social Security, on behalf of itself, the Department for Education and Employment, the Employment Service and the Benefits Agency. (DSS and the employment part of DfEE are now known as the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP)). A further report giving more extensive findings on medium-term outcomes for clients who joined ONE after the introduction of full-participation will be published in due course.
