A local solution to a European issue - Newcastle Futures
A local solution to a European issue - Newcastle Futures Combating unemployment is an important challenge for Newcastle City Council. Newcastle Futures is an innovative service designed to enhance the services provided by the national public employment service in the UK. By integrating services at local level and providing specialised support to vulnerable groups in the area, such as young adults, over 50s, single parents and people living in deprived areas it reduces duplication of services and saves resources. Through Newcastle Futures, the city has managed to enhance the standard employability support services by tailoring them to local needs and since the scheme was set up it has helped over 5,000 people into employment.
Adapting early child care to family needs in Nantes
This innovative early childcare service in Nantes is an example of how European cities are successfully integrating services at local level. The aim is to improve labour market access for women and single parents. As part of the scheme 60 people, all women and mostly single parents, have been able to return to employment or undertake training. This has helped to boost the local labour market and has had a positive impact on the lives of the women concerned. The success of the project is attributed to having all relevant organisations and service providers working together, both on early childhood and social inclusion.
