Blended Employability Service - Citizens' Survey
The City of Edinburgh Council provide city-wide employability services to support citizens into fair employment and training, as well as to progress in employment. There are a variety of services that are delivered by local organisations, including these three services:
- A Supported Employment Service (currently All in Edinburgh - delivered by ENABLE Scotland, The Action Group, IntoWork and Forth Sector) which supports people with a disability or long-term health condition to find a secure job and stay in their job;
- A Complex Needs Employability Service (currently Encompass - delivered by Access To Industry) supports people with complex barriers to find and stay in education, training or employment. The service is for those in recovery from substance misuse, previous offending behaviour, homelessness and other complex issues; and
- Edinburgh Employability Service (currently Next Step - delivered by Community Renewal Trust) helps people to find work, gain skills for work, prepare for work and to progress once they are in work. It also supports people who are struggling while in work.
As a result of the impacts of Covid-19, we are now reviewing these three current services to make sure they best meet the needs of Edinburgh residents. The Council want to get feedback on what our citizens want and need for future employability services, so we would really appreciate you taking five minutes to complete this survey.
