Is your investment in employment delivering the right results – real jobs and self employment, ongoing work maintance and opportunities to progress in, change and benefit from work? Are your commissioned employment services really open to all and offering an effective alternative to, for example, day service

The review could include:
Evaluating the success of current commissioning plans;
Evaluating the success of current strategies;
Supporting individual or groups of support providers review, adapt and develop their services;
Working with individuals, family networks and staff groups to understand the importance of and opportunities for employment;

Reviews are tailored to local needs and priorities.
