(2) how many people aged 50 years will be consulted by each of the six contractors participating in the 50+ face-to-face guidance work options pilot project.
The pilot will look at innovative ways of encouraging people to seek information when they are thinking about how and when to retire as well as making use of flexible working options to help them remain in work or work for longer. It will test different communication methods depending on the geographical area and population and will focus on the delivery of face-to-face guidance tailored to the particular needs of the individual. The contractors will use their knowledge of the local labour market, employers, and other organisations in the local area to design and test out different formats.
In addition, this will test how many people aged 50 and over will be attracted to take up the guidance on offer by each of the contractors. We will be closely monitoring levels of participation generated by each of the contractors.
