London, United Kingdom, May 01, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- While the Office for National Statistics have found that UK unemployment has fallen, jobless levels remain high. The National Tackling Unemployment Conference, taking place in London on Friday 30 May 2014, comes at a crucial time to help you focus on removing the barriers to employment for vulnerable groups struggling to secure sustainable long-term employment.
Now, more than ever, key stakeholder agencies need to come together to combat the impact of welfare reform and benefit changes by tailoring specific intervention programmes to secure sustainable employment opportunities. Key themes for the day include greater collaborative working, the integration of employment, learning and skills and ensuring jobseekers are better positioned to access the opportunities available.
The programme focuses on the following fundamental issues:
• Personalising support to the individual needs of those most at risk; the long-term unemployed, ex-offenders, homeless people and thosewith disabilities
• Equipping young people with the skills and training needed to enter the labour market
• Joining up working between mental health trusts and employment specialists to support people with mental health problems
•Recognising the crucial role housing services can play in tackling unemployment
This event will provide you with first-hand knowledge and best practice case study examples to help you plan and deliver employment support in your local community.
