Major £5.5m employment project in Lancashire launches

A new drive to help people in Lancashire boost their skills and support them into employment and training has launched.

The scheme is part of a programme funded by the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund called Building Better Opportunities.

Meanwhile the Age Of Opportunity programme will run along similar lines and be targeted at supporting 1,500 people over the age of 50.

In England, a total of 27 projects have been given the go ahead with the aim to fill the gaps in existing provision that is available to help people into work, learn new skills and tackle poverty.

Lead partner, Selnet, has worked closely with the Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) to ensure the services on offer meet the specific needs in Lancashire.

“There is good provision in the county to help people who are out of work but there are some people who have significant challenges in their lives and we’re here to help. “They may need six months or a year of help from us and it is that intensive support that the team of specialist partners can deliver.”
