At the time that Wolverhampton began to look at how to improve its employment figures, there were significant pressures to reduce spending across the Council which underlined the need to reduce dependency on social care services through better employment outcomes in the city.

There was a strong financial argument for Wolverhampton to change to find cost savings through reduction in social care spending which they achieved. These can be demonstrated through 6 costed examples of people who were supported by Enable.
