Fair Start Scotland Bid Success
We are delighted to announce that PeoplePlus have been successful and invited to deliver the Scottish Government Employability Programme, Fair Start Scotland in 2 CPA’s, Glasgow and the Highlands and Islands.
The programme will commence on 3rd April 2018 and is a 5 year programme with a contract value of £25.3m. PeoplePlus and its local partners will support unemployed individuals with health issues or other barriers in finding long-term, sustainable employment and self-employment.
Work has started in earnest on preparation and mobilisation, and we look forward to delivering an innovative and integrated approach for this service, collaborating with local stakeholders and businesses to ensure it is a huge success.
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped make this possible, as this is an excellent result for PeoplePlus securing 2 lots in Scotland’s version of the Work and Health programme, including the much sort after Glasgow area. Much hard work went into this bid and many hours travelling and networking across Scotland. This now sets us up as one of the largest providers of employability services in Scotland and gives us a fantastic platform to grow further.
Thanks for all your support – Matt Dooley – Enterprise Director
