Leeds Community Foundation have recently started an Employability Partnership in order to help those furthest from the workplace into work. We hope to do this through:
  • Seeing how we can help the Third Sector Groups operating in this space work better together
  • Finding employers willing to offer practical, pro bono support eg interview practice, work placements, access to their in-house training, general confidence building
  • Writing a guide for employers that helps eradicate myths about employing people with special support needs and/or those that are furthest from the labour market.¬† This is likely to be a web-based resource
In order to do this effectively we are surveying the Third Sector in order to find the work that exists, how we could work together better and what help from employers would be of benefit to you and your participants.
