DWP policy paper: ‘Fuller Working Lives: a partnership approach’

The Department for Work and Pensions published a policy paper, ‘Fuller Working Lives: a partnership approach‘, in February 2017, encouraging businesses to retain, retrain and recruit older workers and presenting the benefits of a fuller working life.

The DWP says that they intend to take the following actions to support older workers:

  • empowering change through others – developing an evidence-based case for action
  • supporting those who need more help – including women, carers, people with long-term health conditions and disabilities and black and minority ethnic groups
  • reforming the Adult Skills system
  • improving the Jobcentre Plus offer for older workers
