PeoplePlus is currently seeking partners to bid for DWPs Intensive Personalised Employment Support (IPES) service in the following three areas:

  1. Central England: Covering West Midlands, Lincolnshire, Staffordshire, Shropshire, Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Leicestershire and Northamptonshire.
  2. North East: Covering County Durham, Tyne & Wear, Tees Valley, Northumberland, Yorkshire, Humber, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire
  3. Wales: Pan Wales

IPES is a new voluntary provision covering England and Wales for people with disabilities and complex barriers to work. It is aimed at individuals who would be considered by Jobcentre work coaches to be more than 12 months from the labour market without intensive support.

They are looking to hear from a diverse range of partners (specialist and end-to-end) with a strong track record of local delivery of employability support for the hardest to help, particularly those with disabilities, and who share our vision, values and commitment to delivering high performing services that transform people’s lives.

Please complete the attached Expression of Interest form and return the completed questionnaire to the email address below by 14:00 on Friday 22nd March 2019.
