star this property answer text <p>The Department of Health and Social Care and the Department for Work and Pensions recognise the impact unemployment can have on an individual’s mental health. An independent review* of the scientific evidence on the relationship between work and health, commissioned by the Department for Work and Pensions, found strong evidence that unemployment is generally harmful to health and linked with poorer mental health, psychological distress, and psychiatric morbidity. Our jobcentre staff work in partnership with mental health providers and services to ensure individuals experiencing unemployment receive the necessary help they need to support them in their job search, work entry and job retention.</p><p>Notes: * Waddell G and Burton AK.

star this property answer text <p>The Government has an ambitious objective to see 1 million more disabled people in work by 2027. We are committed to supporting long-term incapacity benefit claimants into work.</p><p> </p><p>With effect from April 2017, we introduced the Personal Support Package for claimants on Employment and Support Allowance and Universal Credit throughout the Jobcentre Plus network. This initiative is expanding and improving the help we offer to those with disabilities and health conditions. It offers support for ESA and UC claimants to prepare for, find and enter work, but also ensures that we have enough work coaches and advisers to provide that support.</p><p> </p><p>The Work and Health Programme (WHP) was launched throughout England and Wales on a rolling basis between November 2017 and March 2018 and will provide innovative support for around 275,000 people over five years.</p><p> </p><p>The third set of experimental WHP statistics was published on 30 May 2019, and found that 78% of starts were people with a health condition or disability, 9% were people in an early access priority group and 13% were long-term unemployed. Although it’s still very early in the life of WHP, as of February 2019 3,140 participants had achieved a Job Outcome. From the December 2017 cohort, who had received 14 months of support, 23% have achieved a Job Outcome.</p><p> </p><p>Access to Work continues to offer eligible individuals practical advice and a discretionary grant of up to £59,200 per year to fund support above the level of an employer’s statutory obligation to make reasonable adjustments, and this can communication support at interviews for people moving into work.</p><p> </p><p>The Secretary of State for Work and Pensions announced in December 2018 that we would be investing more than £40m in the new Intensive Personalised Employment Support Programme (IPES), a highly personalised package of support for disabled people who are at least a year away from moving into work. IPES is expected to be in place by the end of 2019 and run for a period of 4 years from the start of the contract. IPES will provide support for around 2,500 starts per year, totalling 10,000 on the programme.</p>

star this property answer text <p><strong> </strong></p><p>Automatic enrolment has achieved a quiet revolution through getting employees into the habit of pension saving, and reversing the decline in workplace pension participation in the decade prior to these reforms. Workplace pension participation rates are being transformed with 87% of eligible employees saving into one in 2018, up from 55% in 2012.</p><p> </p><p>The DWP does not hold data for individual constituencies in relation to opt outs or the number of individuals who have saved above the automatic enrolment minimum contribution level. However, we do know that overall around 9% of automatically enrolled workers have chosen to opt out which is significantly below original estimates; and our latest evaluation report shows that, in April 2017, approximately 5.9 million eligible employees were already meeting the April 2019 minimum contribution rates.</p><p> </p><p>In the North Durham constituency, since 2012, approximately 6,000 eligible jobholders have been automatically enrolled and 1,090 employers have met their duties.</p><p> </p><p>Automatic Enrolment Evaluation Report 2018, available via the following weblink: <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/764964/Automatic_Enrolment_Evaluation_Report_2018.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/764964/Automatic_Enrolment_Evaluation_Report_2018.pdf</a>.</p><p> </p><p>The Pensions Regulator’s data on Automatic enrolment declaration of compliance by constituency, available via the following weblink: https://www.thepensionsregulator.gov.uk/en/document-library/research-and-analysis/data-requests</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Mesothelioma Act 2014 established the Diffuse Mesothelioma Payment Scheme (DMPS). The DMPS makes lump sum payments to people who contract diffuse mesothelioma from negligent exposure to asbestos in the workplace, but are unable to pursue a civil claim because their former employer no longer exists and their former employer’s insurer cannot be traced. The DMPS is funded by a levy paid by insurers who are active in the Employer’s Liability insurance market.</p><p><br>This Scheme makes payments to eligible sufferers of diffuse mesothelioma only. Since this disease is always fatal and always caused by asbestos, it has been possible to implement DMPS as a simple payment scheme. Other asbestos-related diseases and other non-asbestos work related diseases have more uncertainties regarding cause, severity and aggravation by other factors and this complexity is not compatible with a straightforward tariff-based scheme such as the DMPS. The report published on 6 December 2013 highlighted the adverse impact on the amount of the levy should the scope of the Scheme be widened, which would also require a re-designing of the scheme, the legislation, and the commercial requirements.</p><p>There are no plans to update the 2013 report or extend eligibility to the DMPS.</p>
