Event description

Description

Making It Work provided a personalised programme of employability support for disadvantaged lone parents, facing significant changes arising from welfare reform, in five local authority areas of Scotland: Edinburgh, Fife, Glasgow, North Lanarkshire and South Lanarkshire. Making It Work was designed to help lone parents who were some distance from the labour market and who were unlikely to be accessing or benefiting from mainstream employability services, to prepare for increased conditionality and be better able to move towards or into work. The programme received £7 million in grant funding from the Big Lottery Fund in Scotland and was delivered between 2013 and 2017 by partnerships led by third sector organisations working in collaboration with the employability providers and other partners.

This event reports on the evaluation of the impact of Making It Work. Members of the Evaluation Team from Strathclyde and Sheffield Hallam Universities will report on the outcomes from the programme. We will also hear from those involved in Making It Work on how the programme worked on the ground and made a difference to lone parents’ lives. Crucially, the event will identify insights for the design and delivery of future employability services in Scotland. The event will be of interest to practitioners, national and local government stakeholders and others with an interest in employability services.
