£35 million of innovative employment schemes to benefit thousands of disadvantaged people

The schemes will be developed and delivered by 6 combined authorities in partnership with the government. The specialist tailored support is expected to help over 18,000 people – including disabled people and older people – tackle long-term barriers to work and in-work progression.

Up to £28 million has been committed by the Department for Work and Pensions for the schemes. They include:

a ‘Health and Care Sector Progression Academy’ to train social care workers in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough
an ‘early intervention’ scheme in Sheffield to prevent people from long-term unemployment
a new business-led training hub for modern work skills in the Tees Valley
