Collaborative approaches to using subscriptions

Our intention is to always strive to identify and deliver work that will benefit or have a positive impact on a wider area, such as a STP area or indeed the whole NW footprint. In this way, we believe that we are delivering value for money for all subscribers. These are some examples from 2017/18:

In Greater Manchester the North West Training and Development Team will be working locally to develop projects and community activities to reduce social isolation amongst people with learning disabilities, autism or both. The primary focus will be upon helping people to develop sustainable activities in their localities, which will include activities that help people to gain the skills and confidence that is needed to seek gainful paid or unpaid employment.

In Pan Lancashire/ Blackburn/ Blackpool and South Cumbria we supported the development of a bid for additional resources to develop this work also.
