PeoplePlus secures UAEHRS position on all Lots

PeoplePlus has secured a position on all six geographic Lots under DWP’s Umbrella Agreement for Employment & Health Related Services (UAEHRS)

PeoplePlus has secured a position on all six geographic Lots under DWP’s Umbrella Agreement for Employment & Health Related Services (UAEHRS). PeoplePlus is the only bidder to have qualified in all 6 UAEHRS geographic Lots, and has also qualified for DWP’s national Lot (Lot 7).

The UAEHRS will run for the next four years, and all major DWP contracted employment programmes are expected to be commissioned through it during that time. Through the UAEHRS, PeoplePlus has therefore qualified to tender for DWP’s new Work and Health Programme for all available prime contracts across the whole of England and Wales.

PeoplePlus already delivers 9 DWP Work Programme prime contracts, as well as a wider range of programmes on behalf of The Skills Funding Agency, Ministry of Justice, and local authorities. It is a division of the wider Staffline Group plc, a national recruitment and workforce management provider.

Debra Jackson, Director of Business Development at PeoplePlus, commented: “We are delighted to have qualified onto DWP’s UAEHRS Framework in all available Lots. The result is a testament to the market leading performance which we have achieved through our employability programmes, and the continuous hard work and innovation demonstrated by our local delivery teams across the country. We are very much looking forward to the next phase of the Work & Health Programme competition, and developing new delivery solutions with our staff, partners, and local stakeholders across the work and health sector.”
