Description : In the 1980s and 1990s long-term worklessness soared - with a more than doubling of the numbers on long-term sickness benefits and significant increases in the number of lone parents out of work. The worst increases were during the recessions. Government action since then has included the New Deals, extra support and help, but also stronger conditions on benefit claimants to seek work or prepare for work in future as part of our ongoing welfare reforms. This "something for something" approach has helped bring worklessness down and prevent some of the problems seen in previous recessions. This document sets out the next steps on welfare reform and tackling long-term worklessness. The plans are designed to help more people into work, to combat poverty and social exclusion. There are still too many people on long term benefits who could work with the right support and conditions in place. Reforms cover: the abolition of incapacity benefits and the roll out of the new Work Capability Assessment to long term claimants to look at what they can do; more personalised help for those unable to work; more support for job seekers with health conditions; preventing long-term unemployment, with a guarantee of a job or work placements for long term job seekers that they will be required to take up; the role of employers.
