This chapter discusses both the pilot and nationally extended versions of the NDDP. It briefly outlines the main features of the NDDP, and focuses on some of the key findings that have emerged from published evaluations of it. The chapter addresses the challenges to smoothing a pathway to paid employment, and ways in which the NDDP scheme could be enhanced to fulfil the significant potential New Labour have placed in it. It concludes by arguing that a rigorous evaluation of the NDDP should be welcomed by those with an interest in helping Incapacity Benefit recipients into employment.
