Winner: Redcar & Cleveland BC – Grangetown Training and Employment Hub

The council’s support for residents of the Grangetown area has seen 1,718 people register for help, with more than 4,000 CVs held online for opportunities with local employers. So far, 276 residents have been supported into employment and 584 into training. Core funding came through a planning gain agreement, and private sector partners access funds to deliver training and guidance. It offers a construction training programme and the hub also functions as a one-stop shop alongside the local credit union, food bank, citizen’s advice service and social landlord Coast and Country. Its success has seen retailers Tesco and Asda use it to assist their local recruitment.

 

Judges’ comments: The commitment and enthusiasm of this winning team shone through and their passionate and precise approach engaged local people. The project has a clear foundation that shows alignment of interest across the business and the community and has delivered true local scale impact.
