The study involved a questionnaire survey of all Supported Employment Agencies in Great Britain. The Agencies who responded (numbering 101 or 48%) supported in jobs, 90.3% those supported worked for under 16 hours per week and 30% small amount up to limits allowing them to retain their welfare benefit income. Of supported workers, 78% employment. Job Coach support was found to fall over time to a mean of one hour per week by the eighth month of work while mean hours worked remained stable in the first year at around 16 hours per week. A cost : benefit analysis showed workers gained {\pounds}2.47 for every {\pounds}1 they lost in taking up employment, and taxpayers received 43p back in savings for each {\pounds}1 invested.
