16 Apr '21

What a year it has been! Despite many challenges, the “Let’s Work” scheme has been brought to a close after a successful year. The Employment initiative funded by the Social Investment Fund (SIF) under the Delivering Social Change framework, has helped 104 people gain full permanent employment and many more gain work experience.

The programme, which commenced in October 2019, received £1.68m investment from SIF to help address employment related issues in areas of socio-economic need across Northern Ireland.

Carrickfergus Enterprise provided strategic leadership to the scheme with employability specialists, Network Personnel taking forward the operational delivery of training and placement provision.

We want to say a big thank you to all the participating host businesses and participants who contributed to the success of the project, particularly during a challenging year. Watch this video to find out more about the scheme from participants, business owners and our partners.
