Three reasons to attend

  1. Lone Parents make up 11% of JSA claimants and have to be actively seeking work.
  2. 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.
  3. ESF is targeting Lone Parents so it is important that bidding and delivery teams know what is needed.
