With thanks to Disability Rights UK.

The last Work programme information shows how many employment support allowance (ESA) claimants found work between 1 June 2011 and 30 June 2013.

Of the 186,530 put on the work programme only 6,210 had a job outcome. This averages out at 1 in 30.

Disability Rights UK’s report Taking Control of Employment Support argues that the government’s huge Work Programme is failing disabled people (with at least an 88% failure rate) and is very poor value for money.
