Ultimately, the failure of Working Links was caused by its subsidiary companies and their Community Rehabilitation Contracts.

star this property answer text <p>Having access to income information from HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) allows the Child Maintenance Service to capture a much wider range of income types received by paying parents. In addition to a parent’s gross annual income, we can capture income derived from property, savings and investments (including dividends) and other miscellaneous income. This unearned income can be included in the calculation if a request is made to vary the calculation. In December 2018 we introduced new powers which also enable us to target complex earners by a calculation of notional income based on their assets.</p><p> </p><p>Cases involving complex income or suspected fraudulent behaviour can be looked into by the Financial Investigation Unit (FIU). This is a specialist team which can request information from financial institutions to check the accuracy of information the Child Maintenance Service is given. When an investigation finds evidence of criminality, the FIU will seek to prosecute or forward to HMRC for consideration of fraud action.</p>

star this property answer text <p>In March 2017, we established a cross-HMG Victims of Terrorism Unit (VTU) to co-ordinate support to UK citizens directly affected by terrorist events at home or overseas. Following the Manchester Arena attack, the unit was stood up for the first time to ensure that support to victims was comprehensive, coordinated and clearly communicated.</p><p>Within hours of the attack, we developed a gov.uk page to provide comprehensive advice to victims and to signpost them to those support services available from HMG, Police, voluntary sector organisations and local structures. We worked with Manchester City Council, the Manchester Local Resilience Forum, the Mayor’s Office and the Manchester Recovery Co-ordination and Humanitarian Assistance Group, offering HMG support and assistance. We wrote out to local authorities, GPs and schools setting out the support available to victims and those affected. We also changed regulations to ensure that payments from the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund did not affect means tested benefits and services.</p><p>The Government has also committed to providing funding of over £24m to Manchester, which includes millions of pounds to fund and support NHS physical and mental health services, and over £1m to the We Love Manchester Fund.</p><p>We continue to work across Government, including with third sector and private sector organisations, to improve and strengthen the support available so that victims receive the best possible support, now and in the future.</p>
