Three reasons to attend
- Lone Parents make up 11% of JSA claimants and have to be actively seeking work.
- Lone Parents on Income Support must get ready for work once their youngest child is three. OFSTED insists that Children’s Centres support parents into work.
- ESF is targeting Lone Parents so it is important that bidding and delivery teams know what is needed.
