Community Lens Webinar: Spotlight on employability and skills

The Literacy Hubs

Three local charities came together to discuss the multiple barriers to employment for people from disadvantaged communities, young people and adults with learning disabilities. Minstead Trust, The Literacy Hubs and Motiv8 described how their innovative interventions are helping to widen access to the employment market. This engaging webinar followed on from our recent report into our £2 million funding programme delivered with 16 community partners, which enabled 1,200 people in the region – from disadvantaged areas, complex backgrounds, or who had disabilities – to take steps that increased their chances of gaining employment or training.
