Out-of-work benefit claimants in Aylesbury Vale remains over 1,000


3:51pm 18th October 2017

3, 200 people are registered unemployed in the latest stats for Aylesbury Vale.

The figure - from June - is 3% of the population here, with just over 1,000 on out-of-work benefits.

That figure's stayed pretty much the same all year - Aylesbury Job Centre manager Samantha Louch said that doesn't mean it's the same people claiming though. She explained:

"There is a churn at the moment. So you have people finding temporary work for example or project work, and then obviously when that ends they come back to us, but they are very quickly off again."

Samantha said when helping people into work they have to address any barriers to employment first. She continued:

"We need to address issues you might have have first, such as your housing situation. And then we'll look at what type of work you're interested in, what licenses you have and other such things."
