New Deal is a key part of the government's Welfare to Work
strategy. Personalised programmes of work and skills training
opportunities, delivered locally, are aimed at helping unemployed
people into work.
There are programmes for young people (18-24), 25+, lone
parents, disabled people, 50+ and partners of the unemployed.
All programmes are accessible through Employment Services and,
whether you are an unemployed individual looking for a job or a
company with vacancies to offer, your first point of contact should
be your local Job Centre.
More information is available on the "New Deal" and "Job
Centre Plus" websites (see "further info" to the right of this
