Decision details

Potential In and Out of Work Pilot

Decision Maker: Central Services Cabinet Member Meeting

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


1.       That the In and Out of Work Project be noted.


2.       That it be agreed in principle to Brighton & Hove becoming a pilot, if selected by DWP to take part, subject to satisfactory financial and resource arrangements.

Reasons for the decision:

1.       Brighton & Hove could opt to wait until the full roll out in December 2009.   However, if selected to take part in the scheme, there would be the opportunity to help develop an implementation model and influence the wider roll out.   Brighton & Hove would also be able to take advantage of the benefits of the new processes including improved customer service and clearance times.



Alternative options considered:

1.       The recommended proposals will enable the City Council to provide a better service to citizens, providing better use of public money and reducing inequality by increasing opportunity. (Council Priorities 2008-11)
