Health, work and health related worklessness - a guide for local authorities

This briefing provides local councillors with a strong business case to address health related worklessness and promote workplace health in their local authority (LA).

It also provides an overview of the current debate on work, worklessness and health, with a particular emphasis on the evidence base and case studies to enable a better understanding of the subject matter and how to promote this agenda in their LA.

The focus is on employed individuals with health conditions falling out of work and onto out-of-work welfare, and those on welfare with health conditions who are not in employment.
