This paper builds on that position and provides a summary of evidence on the effects of unemployment and poor working conditions on health and the unequal distribution of these effects. It then outlines the potential actions that can be taken in local areas around four specific topics:

• workplace interventions to improve health and wellbeing
•work with local employers to encourage, incentivise and enforce good quality work
•interventions to increase employment opportunities and retention for people with a long- term health condition or disability
•interventions to increase employment opportunities and retention for older people

This evidence review was commissioned by Public Health England and researched, analysed and written by the UCL Institute of Health Equity. These papers show evidence for interventions on social issues that lead to poor health, including ways to deal with health inequalities. You can use them to get practical tips for dealing with these issues. They also show examples from local areas showing interventions that have been used to improve health. The series includes eight evidence reviews and 14 short briefing papers.

The documents can be used by:

  • local authority professionals whose work has implications for health and wellbeing, such as children’s services and planning services
  • local authorities - particularly directors of public health and their teams - to build health and wellbeing strategies and Joint Strategic Needs Assessments
  • public health teams making a case for action on health inequalities

This paper first describes the relationship between being NEET and health; inequalities in prevalence of being NEET; and the scale of the problem. It shows that being NEET, particularly for prolonged periods, is associated with negative effects on health and a range of other outcomes. Furthermore, the chances of becoming NEET are not equally or randomly distributed throughout society – those who are relatively disadvantaged, from poor backgrounds, or who have had negative experiences at school are more likely to spend some time being NEET.

This paper summarises the evidence on adult learning and health. There is evidence that involvement in adult learning has both direct and indirect links with health, for example because it increases employability. These effects differ according to who is taking part and the type of learning provided. There is also evidence that skill formation (particularly in literacy and numeracy) and qualifications may be important for health.

The Children and Young People's Mental Health and Wellbeing Profiling Tool has been developed to support an intelligence driven approach to understanding and meeting need. It collates and analyses a wide range of publically available data on risk, prevalence and detail (including cost data) on those services that support children with, or vulnerable to, mental illness. It provides commissioners, service providers, clinicians, services users and their families with the means to benchmark their area against similar populations and gain intelligence about what works.
