PRIORITY TEN: INCREASING EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES LEAD PARTNER: PETROC

People in the following categories are disproportionately under-represented in the Northern Devonemployment market:

  • Care leavers
  • Ex-offenders/prison leavers
  • Those with a history of illness
  • People with learning disabilities
  • People with low or no academic qualifications
  • Homeless people and those insecurely housed
  • People on low income/seasonal or zero hours contracts
  • This contributes to increasing health inequalities as meaningful employment plays an important part in a person’s wellbeing and health outcomes.
  • Interventions need to be targeted to people who need support at different parts of the employment pathway:
  • Ready to learn or train
  • Support while learning or training
  • Support while in employment
