Lift scheme helps 3,000 people into work and training, 23/03/16 [W]

The second year of the Lift programme has seen the provision of the 3,000th training and work opportunity.

Lift provides dedicated one-to-one support to help people living in a household where no one has worked for more than six months to access opportunities for work or training. The programme aims to break down the barriers to employment and training by supporting those most at risk of facing them, such as disabled people, adults with no qualifications, young single parents and adults with poor employment records. The latest figures show that the programme has helped almost 600 into employment and is on track to meet its target of providing 5,000 training and work opportunities by the end of 2017.
