Futures for Families

Futures for Families is a new initiative, part funded by Scottish Government under the Parental Employment Support Fund. This is delivered locally by the Skills & Employment Initiatives Team.

The programme offers a tailored package of support to eligible parents. Whether a client is in or out of work they will receive relevant assistance to progress with the ultimate aim of securing well paid, highly skilled employment.

The programme offers:

  • Support in searching, securing and sustaining employment from a designated Key Worker
  • Training and skills action planning
  • In-work support to progress, in the form of a Skills and Training Grant - Elev8 Employment and Training Grant.
