9 Aspirations / Challenges for London CPA
Using Work Programme as a platform for future growth Taking a “Total Person” approach to include families, health, justice. Integration with current local activity - role of Community Officer Payment by results contract needs to have additional funding support. Working with local providers and funding bodies to have access to other areas of funding to support. London has the lowest employment and generally national employment contracts tend to have the lowest outcomes in London. The 6 primes are working together on support for London through the GLA, including Jobs access, Skills and Health.
