Public Sector Network Tender Alert


Diagnostic & Planning and Mentoring Support for Customers of the 'Opportunity YES' Initiative

"The Flexible Support Fund (FSF) is intended to help Jobcentre Plus (JCP) District Managers to flexibly deliver elements of our service in the way they see fit for their Districts. In particular, the FSF enables JCP Districts to trial different approaches to tackling worklessness. Greater autonomy for District Managers will enable Jobcentre Plus to respond to one of the priorities of the coalition government - public service reform and the devolution of power from the centre to the front line. District Managers are best placed to deliver elements of our service effectively and efficiently, procuring external services where appropriate, in order to meet the needs of local claimants. The JCP District of Gloucestershire and West of England (G&WE) intend to use the FSF to access more specific and bespoke support, including diagnostic assessment, 1-2-1 support and mentoring for unemployed claimants to move them into, or nearer, employment through its partnership with Gloucestershire County Council."
