we work with government


Each year we work with more than 500,000 young people and adults by providing high quality services on behalf of government departments and agencies. We have developed innovative, effective ways to maintain services while facing cuts in expenditure.

Prospects works with many government departments and agencies including Department for Education (DfE), Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), Ministry of Justice and the Cabinet Office.

Our Approach

  • Innovation and real understanding of service needs and priorities, designing programmes to meet them
  • Individual support for service users when they need it most
  • Value for money
