Stockport seeks provider for employment support pathways

Stockport Council’s Neighbourhood Inclusion Team is seeking quotations for a project to support the development of more holistic employment support pathways.

The council wants to design a service that more actively joins local people with local labour opportunities through volunteering and placement opportunities, whilst also recognising the value of tradition skills based support. They want to commission a project that can pilot new ways of working that could be scaled up, ultimately informing changes to employment support services in a locality and enhancing the links between businesses and areas of employment deprivation.

The contract is being advertised on The Chest and expressions of interest are invited by 31 May.
