50 Families: exploding myths about the unemployed

Last year we surveyed 50 families who we successfully helped back to work over the preceding 12 months, to see if they had sustained their employment.

Not only had over 75% sustained their employment, the effect had translated into a whole range of positives for all members of the family including better health, improved self-belief, as well as reduced arrears and debt.  The residents no longer in employment were mainly those who had lost their job due to the economic downturn.  They  were enthusiastically seeking work at the time of the survey
