The pilot initiative will support people aged 30 and over facing the greatest difficulties in accessing jobs. This includes people who have been out of work for a long period, those who face physical and mental health challenges. The project provides an exciting opportunity to test new ways of collaborative working at a local level that takes a person centered and responsive approach to address the multiple barriers that some people face when trying to access work.
