We are still 'open for business' at the RSN with all of our staff working remotely to stay safe. We will still be delivering our services to our customers, although we're having a little think about how to best enable our usual face to face meetings and seminars.

We are looking forward to chatting with you online! If you have a query please email and we will get back to you.

Stay safe!

Employment and Support Assessment

Employment and Support Assessment (ESA) is an income replacement benefit for people below state pension age.  If someone has a health condition or disability, and for that reason are unable to work, ESA offers financial support and personalised help so that they can return to work if they are able to.  The following analyses looks at the Employment and Support Assessment caseload as a proportion of total local authority population estimate, both for district and unitary authorities.  The analysis shows the relative level of caseload and compares to key averages to provide a barometer of a local authority's particular situation.
