Success for Working Links


Working Links is delivering a  government scheme to help families back to work across Lincolnshire and the surrounding regions.

Working Links has launched a new programme to help families get back to work across the East Midlands. The programme, introduced by Employment Minister Chris Grayling and funded through the European Social Fund, will last three years and will see Working Links engaging with thousands of people in a bid to tackle social exclusion and poverty.

Through this contract Working Links will employ up to 40 new people to deliver the programme internally and will work with ten partner organisations to deliver across the region.

Breege Burke, Working Links chief executive, said:

“We’re delighted to have been chosen by the government to deliver this important contract. “The number of households where no-one has ever worked is at a record high – that is a big problem but one we’re committed to addressing as part of this programme.

“We have an excellent track record of delivering innovative programmes to help people change their lives and we’ll be working with dozens of partner organisations, including those from the voluntary sector, to ensure this record continues.”

Well done!!
