In the last five years, the Outset service has engaged more than 22,432 individuals, supporting the creation of over 4,332 new businesses and 4,808 new jobs; and the service continues to demonstrate its value and impact on both an economic and social level.
Outset is estimated to have saved over £22 million in benefits payments throughout the UK, with these new enterprises contributing £4 million in taxes, and at least £16 million GVA to the economy. This represents a return of nearly 200% to the public purse.
Not to mention the strong social return delivered through the programme, reducing social and financial exclusion, strengthening deprived communities and helping people escape poverty.
