star this property answer text <p /> <p>My Department takes part in a range of discussions at the EU level on issues relating to youth unemployment. <br> <br> The European Commission also continues to collect information from Member States in this respect. <br> <br> We believe that action is best taken at a national level because governments are best placed to know what measures are needed to address the particular situation in their country.<br> <br> This government introduced the youth contract, which is in addition to the support already on offer through the jobcentre. <br> <br> Latest statistics show that we are making real progress in tackling youth unemployment. Overall, youth unemployment in the UK is lower than most EU countries; it has fallen by 127 000 since peaking in 2011 and continues to fall. The Government remains focused on addressing this issue.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p /> <p /> <p>The Department does not have a target for completion of Personal Independence Payment (PIP) claims whilst processes are bedding in. Clearly, we want to minimise the length of time claimants have to wait for assessments but the key requirement is to produce high quality assessments, to enable DWP decision makers to make the right decisions about benefit entitlement.</p><p> </p><p>We are committed to driving up PIP performance and are in regular contact with our assessment providers to do this. We already monitor performance closely and liaise with assessment providers on a daily basis, supplemented by formal monthly performance review meetings. We will continue to work closely with assessment providers on an ongoing basis to monitor quality.</p><p> </p><p>Our original Departmental operational delivery plans assumed a larger volume of assessment provider referrals than we are currently receiving and we have retained this surplus capacity using it to consolidate learning or carry out other duties. This will be available for deployment as cases are returned to the Department for decision maker action. The Department has contingency plans in place to secure additional capacity from other areas of the Department should assessment provider volumes exceed plans.</p><p> </p><p>From 10 March we have included with the PIP2 ‘How your disability affects you' questionnaire, issued to PIP claimants, communications explaining how long they might be expected to wait for a PIP assessment. This information is also available on Gov.uk.</p>
