Evaluation of Oxford City Council's Welfare Reform Team European Social Fund Project

To ask the City Executive Board to note the evaluation of the project.  The evaluation includes contributions from Oxford University, external stakeholders and a customer survey.


Original project brief:

The project being undertaking is funded by the European Social Fund (ESF) and the aim is to engage with 600 tenants renting privately in Oxford City who aren’t working to determine what support they would need in order to either gain employment or undertake work related training.  The project builds on the success of the Local Authority Led Pilot undertaken by OCC during 2013 by identifying a new customer base which will in turn provide more learning on what a Local Support Service Framework (LSSF) could look like once Universal Credit is introduced in Oxford. The report aims to highlight the activity that will be undertaken during the ESF Project.
