In what ways do housing circumstances affect the way people move into, and remain in, work? What role is played in labour market outcomes by temporary accommodation, housing affordability, poor quality housing, insecure accommodation and the private and social rented sectors?

Background

This encompasses priorities around:

- ensuring that it pays to work, and supporting in-work progression
- supporting those facing barriers to work to reach their potential in the labour market via Sector-based Work Academy Programmes (SWAPs), In-Work Progression, support for older Jobseekers and the Youth Offer
