Another Gov’t failure on helping people to work, here as reported by the Daily Mirror. We can do better.
Contrast gov’t failure with the work of The One Stop Shop in the Meadows, which seeks to help people and families, from the Meadows and Clifton, particularly on employment. The latest performance figures show –

Supporting Families (with multiple barriers) – From 1st April 2012 – January 2013: have supported and continue to support 27 Families. In January 2013 due to financial concerns within this project OSS have had to re profile with Working Links and reduce this contract by 50%; as from 1st February we will only be supporting families from the Meadows and Clifton area.
Work Clubs (Meadows and Clifton) From July 2012 – January 2013: have supported 160 individuals with employability skills and one to one support which has helped 45 people back into education / training, 44 people into Employment and 29 people into Voluntary work.
