Inquiry status: Inquiry concluded, Report and Government Response published
The Future Jobs Fund (FJF) was established in April 2009 to create six-month job opportunities for young people and adults in areas of high unemployment. The inquiry considers whether the FJF was successful and cost-effective in helping these groups find permanent jobs, as well as the benefits that employers and communities experienced through the programme. The inquiry also considers the Government’s decision to cease the programme in March 2011 and the extent to which effective support was available for young people following the closure of the FJF.
The report, Youth Unemployment and the Future Jobs Fund, examines the Government’s decision to terminate the Future Jobs Fund a year early as part of its measures to address the UK budget deficit.
