Addiction & Substance Misuse

WY-FI submitted a response to the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP)  independent review into the impact on employment outcomes of drug and alcohol addiction, and obesity. Our response set out evidence on what supports people with drug and alcohol problems to find and stay into employment. The evidence suggests that adding mandatory requirements would not be helpful to individuals or to the government. Instead, there is a range of other ways in which the support that people receive could become more effective.
