Our Future?

GL Communities is the district partner of the Employment and Skill Hub Outreach project, which aims to bridge the gap between the GEM Project and access to further funding from the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF).

The new ESHO team are proud to anounce that they are now funded by the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF).

The UK Shared Prosperity Fund is a central pillar of the UK government’s Levelling Up agenda and provides £2.6 billion of funding for local investment by March 2025. The Fund aims to improve pride in place and increase life chances across the UK investing in communities and place, supporting local business, and people and skills.

ESHO

The Challenge

ESHO will provide intensive 1:1 support to individuals who are economically inactive and help them return to volunteering, education, training, or employment.

We also cover BAME within Gloucestershire, (Black, Asian, and other Minority Ethnic) and specialise the needs and priorities from all backgrounds to help apply for their jobs. We work with organisations across Gloucestershire which promote values of inclusivity and diversity in the workplaces.

The Criteria

ESHO: “Economic inactivity means that people (aged 16-64) are not involved in the labour market – they are neither working or actively seeking employment. Economic inactivity includes the long-term sick claiming benefits, students, early retirees, and individuals who do not claim any state benefit”.
