Supported Employment proof of concept LAs announced

We have finally received confirmation of the local authorities that will participate in the supported employment proof of concept trials. The announcement had been delayed for 10 weeks by the election but the local authorities were informed this morning.

The following nine local authorities have been informed and invited to participate in the initiative:

  • Brighton and Hove City Council
  • Cheshire West and Chester Council
  • City of York Council
  • Croydon Council
  • Hertfordshire County Council
  • Kent County Council
  • Shropshire Council
  • Stockport Council

All the authorities are members of BASE and we will be offering support to them over the 18 month period. Design workshops are planned for 8-9 August. We'll bring you more news when we can.
