  • Tackle worklessness for households or individuals within these four neighbourhoods;
  • Engage effectively with individuals and through this engagement successfully engage with households in order to minimise the impact of the economic conditions;
  • Bring together key delivery partners to provide a co-ordinated approach that maximises resources and support available to individuals and households to address intergenerational worklessness;
  • Work with local partnerships to identify where this support is needed most ensuring it links effectively into wider economic planning and locally-agreed priorities;
  • Work closely with Social Landlords to support tenants to move from welfare to work;
  • Place Jobcentre Plus advisers in the community to deliver a ‘household’ advisory service where co-dependencies on benefits will be investigated; barriers to moving into work explored and action plans developed for engaged households;
  • Support inter-agency interventions within the community to bring all agencies together and provide added value to partnerships.
  • Achieve annually, a set of stretching targets, of engaging with 1000 people and placing 320 into employment with a sustainability target of 80% remaining in employment after 13 weeks.
