Jobs & Opportunities
How can we provide better jobs and economic opportunities for local people? That might involve a range of ideas - from childcare and support to help parents back to work, to apprenticeships for young and old, and shared workplaces for people working from home. Overall, we can create innovative ways that ensure all individuals are heard, and inequalities in accessing employment are addessed.
