Moving from Welfare to Work: Low Work Intensity Households and the Quality of Supportive Services (146)
Moving from Welfare to Work, finds that Ireland’s social welfare and employment support system, e.g. Intreo does reasonably well in supporting people into paid work, but there is a need to have a greater focus on the household. This means encouraging and supporting into jobs partners of people who are unemployed, lone parents, people with a disability and their carers who wish to enter employment.
