6 Jobcentre Plus 6 The process for getting support to staff who are at risk of redundancy. In all cases we try to make early contact with the company and in consultation with the employer, the unions and (if appropriate) the administrators, we agree a flexible package of support tailored to the need. For the National companies we work closely with Jobcentreplus colleagues at regional and national level to get an early steer on how the company want us to deliver the support and locally in Devon and Cornwall, we arrange a meeting with the AAF to discuss how we will delivery that support. For large numbers we usually suggest Open day events attended by JCP and all the partner organisations. This means the help, support and advice is available in one place on the same day. For smaller numbers the Jobcentre deliver the redundancy help sessions on their own, “signposting” where appropriate to the other organisations who can offer support.
