Abstract

The purpose of this research project was to examine whether Think Family
generate positive savings on their public investment when assisting individuals
into work. The research achieved this by analysing the repercussions of an
individual returning to work and allotting a value to the benefits. The total savings
were cross examined against Think Family’s budget up to 2019/2020 and the
number of individuals helped were sourced from the minimum standard targets
that Think Family have set.
It was found that the Worklessness team produced savings on investment for
90% of Think Family’s total budget, and had a £12,809,989 surplus on the
worklessness budget over the five years to 2019/2020. Meaning that for every £1
invested by the government, Think Family’s worklessness programme’s
intervention avoided £2.88 in future costs for the government.
Having completed this research it was found that the work that Think Family
performs is not only beneficial to the individuals involved, but also has a positive
effect on the public purse.
