Gingerbread Working Forward

Gingerbread, the charity for single parent families are providing support across SELEP’s area through their programme ‘Working Forward’. Parents not in work receive support through an individual mentor who will help them to overcome their barriers to engagement through information, advice and guidance.

Support is tailored to individual need but can include employability training, help with training work placements or sector vocational training.

ESF Projects

ESF focuses on improving employment opportunities, promoting social inclusion and investing in skills by providing the help people need to fulfil their potential.

So far over £50 million has been invested in a range of programmes and projects to help people in the South East LEP area onto the escalator of opportunity and improve their lives.

We are also working with partners from across the area to prioritize future areas for investment for the remaining £20+ million pounds. These tenders will be advertised in the website in the first half of 2018 and you can find the latest information here on the SELEP homepage.

Escalator of Opportunity

The ‘Escalator of Opportunity’ describes SELEP’s European Social Fund investment in skills and social inclusion projects. A participant can move along the escalator all the way from long term unemployment to in work training into higher level skills.
