Project Director: Sarah Pearson
Project Duration: 2021-2023
Your Work Your Way provides intensive, personalised support to help potential second earners in low-income families to move into paid work. The programme is being delivered by the Child Poverty Action Group (CPAG) in four areas of England (Bury, Coventry, Luton and Taunton) and aims to support 100 individuals across the 4 areas.
CRESR is using a mixed-methods approach to carry out process and impact evaluation. Pre- and post-intervention data will be gathered using a longitudinal survey to capture evidence on the ‘distance-travelled’ of those participating in the programme. Interviews with programme participants and staff will explore the mechanisms for change, and the degree to which the support provided has enabled participants to address barriers and challenges to finding work.
The project team also includes Professor Colin Lindsay (University of Strathclyde).
