Answered By: 
The Mayor

The government has announced that funding for the Work and Health Programme (WHP) will be transferred to London local government, subject to certain conditions including co-funding.

It is expected that London will meet the government's co-funding requirements by match funding the devolved WHP funding with European Social Fund monies (Still subject to approval).
