The Commission on the Future of Employment Support has been established to develop evidence-led proposals for reform of our system of employment support and services, so that it can better meet the needs of the individuals, employers and our economy now and in the future.

The launch report and evidence paper details the key challenges and opportunities that we are facing in the labour market, how we compare with our international peers, and the role that employment support and services play.

Over the next eighteen months, the Commission will be working with all of those with an interest in employment support and services to develop proposals for reform so that we can better help people to find good work, help employers to fill jobs and support economic growth and social inclusion.

Time is running out to share your views on what is working well, what can be improved, and what we can learn from the UK and overseas. The Call for Evidence closes on January 30th, please do get in touch via the link: or by email at Your views can inform our research and help reform employment support.
