DLB working to get unemployed people back into work

“The project team would like to extend its thanks to the impressive and dedicated work done by the team in Landlord Services in not only exceeding its targets on both Digital Log Books issued, but also helping over 298 back into Employment, Training, Education or Volunteering. Well done!!” ESF Project Leader

We are delighted to be working on a European Social Fund / DWP project with Birmingham City Council to identify barriers preventing people from working and providing appropriate levels of support and sign posting that can help unemployed people in their quest for work or into work related activities such as volunteering or apprenticeships.   The project will work with 5,000 people who meet certain criteria, typically not on an existing work programme, to be given a Digital Log Book to support them through their own My Work Journey.  The Digital Log Book My Work Journey will enable people to record their work search activities on their journey back into work and this information can be used to support employment related benefit claims i.e. currently JSA.
