Communities for Work and Parents, Childcare & Employment Programme Team

Communities for Work and Parents, Childcare & Employment Programme Team

Welsh Government |
 

Community-based employability programmes working with the hardest to reach individuals in society was developed and established. Based on excellent evaluations of previous programmes, negotiations were successful in achieving a combination of resources, skills, knowledge and expertise to develop the Communities for Work and the Parents, Childcare and Employment programmes. The programmes’ joint Strategic Board was established with membership from Welsh Government, DWP, WLGA, third sector and the WEFO. It provides multi-agency, strategic and collaborative oversight to ensure both programmes are delivering to maximum effect to tackle poverty through sustainable employment. This unique cross Government approach has been instrumental in securing over £85m to deliver CfW and PaCE across Wales driving better outcomes for individuals and communities
