Fulfilling Lives Workforce Development Briefings

A series of Workforce Development Briefings are now available from the Fulfilling Lives Evaluation Partner.

Each of the briefings focus on a different aspect of workforce development and multiple disadvantage.

Ensuring the workforce is equipped with the necessary skills, knowledge and attitudes is an essential part of providing effective services and support for people experiencing multiple disadvantage.

Briefing 1: Involving people with lived experience in the workforce

Briefing 2: What makes an effective multiple disadvantage navigator

Briefing 3: Upskilling the wider workforce

Briefing 4: Working with commissioners and policy-makers  

System-wide workforce development is one of five collective strategic priorities identified by Fulfilling Lives partnerships and intended to create sustainable change.
