Wise Age has won a contract with Hackney Connect to provide support and training both to large and small organisations in Hackney to help them provide joined-up support to over 50s seeking employment and self-employment.
There is also funding to provide direct support to 50+ individual Hackney residents looking for work. The project will run over a 2 year period.
Wise Age has been in contact with two major lead bodies to prepare the way for a partnership application to deliver the ESF Employment support programme due to be launched in January by the DWP.
The two potential partners are age UK London, and Shaw Trust.
Anyone wishing to be included in the consortium to deliver this project should contact us before Christmas, as well as getting prepared to fill in the pro forma partnership application forms which we will be sending to interested ROPES members.
