The Accord Group is delighted to announce eight delivery partners for the 'Working Together' housing and prosperity project.
'Working Together' forms part of the wider City Deal initiative. A £2.8 million, five year pilot project, the aim is to target 2,800 unemployed, social housing tenants across the Black Country, and get 900 into employment.
The partners will be working in Princes End in Sandwell, Bilston East in Wolverhampton; Darlaston South in Walsall and Kates Hill in Dudley to offer a range of support services to help social housing tenants find employment opportunities.
Jacki Lakin, City Deal Project Directors, said: "We had a fantastic response to our call for grant applications earlier this year – our delivery partners all have their own specialisms and their projects meet the gaps and needs of the areas we are working in we are excited to have a diverse range of providers offering innovation as part of the Working Together pilot.”
The eight delivery partners are: Bilston Resource Centre, Gazebo, Black Country Training Group, Dudley MBC – Adult Community Learning Team, Ideal for All, Age UK, Black Country Housing Group and Walsall Adult Community College.
