Welcome to our journey.
Building Better Opportunities
Funding supports projects in England that tackle poverty and promote social inclusion.
It is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund
eMploY-ABILITY Mission Statement
Across our programme we will work together with those furthest from the labour market, to deliver the best support and outcomes for our participants.
We will be recognising their individual needs with a tailored package of barrier busting and support interventions – taking them on a journey into work, training or actively seeking work, moving at their pace and with their goals in mind.
We will build a programme that raises long term awareness and confidence in underrepresented groups and those with additional barriers, that fosters greater social inclusion both in terms of economic and community participation – building a legacy for continued positive change and outcomes for the community and beneficiaries.
- What is eMploY-ABILITY?
The employability programme will support a significant number of those furthest from the labour market back into work in priority areas of Peterborough, Fenland, Kings Lynn and West Norfolk identified in the GCGP LEP ESIF strategy.
It will proactively tackle inequality by targeting underrepresented groups and those with additional barriers to foster greater social inclusion both in terms of economic and community participation.
Employability offers an innovative programme design based on a personalised approach with a tailored package of barrier busting and support interventions which are designed and commissioned with participants.
