As defined by the International Labour Organisation (ILO), unemployed persons are those:
Without a job, have been actively seeking work in the past four weeks and are available to start in the next two weeks
Out of work, have found a job and are waiting to start it in the next two weeks. Not all unemployed persons claim unemployment-related benefits. This is due to either not being entitled to claim unemployment-related benefits or choosing not to do so. Here, unemployment-related benefits is defined as those in receipt of Job Seekers Allowance (JSA) or are in the Intensive Work Search Regime within Universal Credit (UC).
Economically Inactive People
- Economically inactive individuals are those not in work and not actively seeking work (unlike unemployed individuals who are actively seeking work)
- Not all economically inactive individuals claim benefits
- For those that do, this would include those claiming either ‘legacy’ benefits or those within specific conditionality regimes in UC
– The former here includes Employment Support Allowance (ESA), Incapacity Benefit (IB) and Income Support (IS)
– The latter here includes claimants within the Preparation Requirement or Work Focused Interview Requirement conditionality regimes
People aged 16 and over who did one hour or more of paid work per week, or were temporarily away from work (e.g. because they were temporarily sick or on holiday). This includes:
- Employees (permanent and temporary workers, the latter including those on fixed period contracts, agency temping etc.)
- Family workers (unpaid)
- People on government-supported training programmes, engaging in any form of work, work experience or work-related training
- Persons on maternity or paternity leave
Participants must be living within a county that the specific grant award is approved to work within i.e. Cardiff.
The project is funded by the UK Government through the UK Community Renewal Fund.
