Our region gets 16 temporary jobs centres amongst almost 200 created nationwide

Sixteen of the temporary job centres just set up throughout the UK are in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.

They’ve been set up as part of the Government’s plans to get 500,000 people currently out of work into jobs by the end of the summer as part of the ‘Way to Work’ campaign.

They are also helping claimants move to Universal Credit by the end of 2024 as part of the DWP’s process to contact those still claiming legacy benefits, as it was revealed earlier this week that around 1.4 million people would be an average of around £220 a month better off on Universal Credit.

Mims Davies MP, Minister for Employment, said: “We know how much value people get from being in work, both financially and in boosting their confidence and wellbeing, which is why we’ve increased our local DWP Jobcentre support across all communities.

“We are getting jobseekers into the record number of vacancies while also supporting those in low paid work to be able to increase their hours, to earn more and move forward in their career.”

DWP Minister Baroness Stedman-Scott said: “Our work coaches go above and beyond to help jobseekers no matter their circumstances, unlocking employment barriers, guiding them towards new work and upskilling opportunities to have brighter futures.”

The Jobcentre Plus expansion is among the largest and rapid of its kind in the UK. It has enabled Work Coaches to provide vital support to help people back to work following the Covid-19 Pandemic.
