Work Programme and Papworth Trust: are you disabled?

with 41 comments

Simple question if you are sent to The Papworth Trust (or similar charities like it) for the Work Programme… are you disabled?

Ipswich Unemployed Action suspects many sent to the Work Programme subcontractor doesn’t have a disability of any description.Why do we ask? Well its not a witch hunt… we are not discriminating against those with a disability or learning difficulty… Just the following is a snippet from The Papworth Trust latest Summary Information Return:

Charity Number: 211234

Financial Year End: 31 March 2010
Submitted on 31 January 2011

This online version of the form shows the information you have entered through Annual Return 2010 Online and has been designed to make it easier for charities to print.

This Summary Information Return was submitted online by MR TONY OSBORNE on 31 January 2011. You do not need to send us a signed copy.

Question 1 – The Charity’s Aims

What are your charity’s aims?

Papworth Trust’s Mission is ‘for disabled people to have equality, choice and independence’.

Question 2 – Who benefits?

Who benefits from your charity’s work?

Papworth Trust works with a range of disabled and disadvantaged people. Primarily the Trust is a pan-disability charity that works with people who have physical or learning disabilities. This can include disabled children through to people in their 80s.

How do you respond to their needs and how do they influence the charity’s development?

Our current activities cover six main services namely: Employment, Vocational Rehabilitation, Learning for Life and Work, Housing, Personal Support and Empowerment.

Question 3 – The Charity’s Strategy

What are the key elements of your charity’s medium to long term strategy?

Papworth Trust provides a range of services to disabled and disadvantaged people to ensure that they have more equality, choice and independence in their lives. These services are provided across the East of England, the East Midlands and into London. The future Strategy is to increase the availability of existing services to more disabled people in those geographic areas.

How does your charity measure the success of the strategy?

We set Key Performance Indicators which identify ways of measuring our progress towards our vision, and we share our performance against target in monthly reports sent to all Trustees and discussed at Trustee Board meetings.

We use our mission and vision to set a strategy and business plan. The business plan then becomes the basis for our annual budgets. Financial performance against budget is reported to Trustees monthly and discussed at Finance Committee and Trustee Board meetings.

MR TONY OSBORNE certified online that:

* the information provided was correct
* it had been or would be brought to the attention of all the trustees

Those who give answers that they know are untrue or misleading may be committing an

Yes, the Papworth Trust charity is setup to help disAbled people… so delivering a contract (Work Programme subcontractor one to be precise) benefiting more people other than disabled people is against its charitable aims!!

Shame on The Papworth Trust for shunning its objectives to deliver a medium sized contract in welfare-to-work – lets hope they aren’t forced into bankruptcy by undertaking such, although with its management willing to be considered for the Work Programme, let alone undertaking such contract, lets hope the charity folds and another takes the place to deliver vital services to the disabled who need them.

  3. Jobs programme ‘hangs by thread’

    Iain Duncan Smith’s programme to get people back to work is “hanging by a thread”, observers have warned, after figures from the government’s spending watchdog showed higher rates of unemployment and lower growth than previously forecast.

    Providers of the £5bn Work Programme are already working flat out to meet ambitious targets for the number of people they get back into work over the next few years. They include some of the UK’s largest service companies, such as A4e and Ingeus Deloitte.

    However, figures published on Tuesday by the Office for Budget Responsibility show that their job has just got harder, with one estimate suggesting the lower growth figures will result in 7 per cent fewer people re-entering the workplace from 2010 to 2015.

    Ian Mulheirn, director of the Social Market Foundation think-tank, said: “The OBR is predicting that the numbers claiming unemployment benefits will be 460,000 higher in 2014 than they thought when the Work Programme was commissioned.

    “The combination of rising caseloads, falling labour demand, and the shift to 100 per cent outcome-based funding for providers is dire news for Work Programme viability.”

    Providers have already warned they would struggle to meet the rising targets set by ministers. This could be financially damaging as a large chunk of the money the companies receive for running the programme is set by results.

    Mr Mulheirn has previously said that if companies look set to miss their targets, they might ask for a taxpayer bail-out or threaten to walk away from the project altogether.

    The OBR predicted the number of people claiming out-of-work benefits would be 1.7m on average each year from 2012 to 2015 – a sharp rise from last year’s forecast of 1.3m.

    The claimant count is now set to be 460,000 higher in 2014 than was forecast this time last year, when the Department for Work and Pensions set their targets. That year is especially sensitive for providers as it is the first one in which they will be paid solely by results.

    Tony Wilson, policy director at the think-tank Inclusion, has calculated that providers will be able to place an average of 7 per cent fewer people in work over the next five years than previously estimated.

    Mr Wilson said: “It’s an iron law that lower growth means fewer jobs. So Jobcentre Plus and the Work Programme will find it far tougher to hit their targets. The government has a choice – either lower the targets and accept higher unemployment, or invest more in getting people back to work.”

    A spokesperson for the department said: “We always said the road to recovery would be tough – there is a long way to go before we deal with all the economic challenges ahead. But even in these tough times there are jobs out there, with Jobcentre Plus taking 10,000 vacancies every working day.

    “The Work Programme will continue to provide tailored support so that unemployed people can overcome whatever barriers they face. Providers were required in their initial bid to demonstrate that they had the capacity to deliver the Work Programme.”

    From here.

  33. I want to start a fashion/lifestyle blog. I love photography, but I want to upgrade my digital camera to a more professional one. I also wanted to start this blog, so which camera would you recommend me. I have a small budget, so if you could find something that is not too pricey, I would appreciate it. Thanks a lot !.

  34. A computer starts somewhere. It starts with a bios and a CPU and a motherboard ect… When we code that computer to pump out a random number, what makes it pick the number it picks? Exactly the same computer sits beside it’s identical and they both pick different 1st random numbers. Is the Bios fed a seed during construction and every new bios gets a different seed? Those of us that have worked with random numbers know what a seed is. So why does my computer give a number between 100 and 1000 as 756, but yours gives, 537? Is that not a form of intelligence beyond that of artificial? We gave the computer the ability to give random numbers, but what makes it give or pick that random number when in reality it has no ‘will’ to decide. Why 3 and not 4, when it favours nothing? Even with a seed, what makes it choose 5 with this seed but 7 with that seed? Where in the ruels of life does it say that, with this seed equaling 756395837 in that computer, 1st random # will be this?.
