West London Alliance

  • Comment

The six boroughs of the West London Alliance - Barnet, Brent, Ealing, Harrow, Hillingdon and Hounslow - and their partners have launched a programme of action to promote and develop economic growth, jobs and skills.

The programme is based on a ‘whole place budget’ approach which aims to ‘rewire’ the way public services are delivered in order to meet key economic and social objectives in west London.

The partners have agreed to focus on five key issues for the west London economy:

  • Supporting young people, particularly the more vulnerable, through education and into employment and training.
  • Assisting long-term unemployed people to find and stay in employment.
  • Ensuring that learners are able to make informed choices about courses and qualifications and that skills provision is simplified for employers.
  • Improving access to quality advice for new businesses.
  • Supporting businesses with the potential to grow.

Working together to co-design new ways of delivering services to residents and businesses, the partners intend to produce business plans for each area by the end of December with a view to start delivering improved services in April 2014.

Stakeholders include: schools, colleges and universities; businesses and business organisations; voluntary and community organisations; Jobcentre Plus, the Greater London Authority, and the London Enterprise Panel.
