The 'Future that Works' campaign, led by Communities that Work, calls for a national commitment to create systemic change to tackle unemployment, economic inactivity and in-work poverty within some of the UK’s most disadvantaged communities.
We’re asking the next Government to commit to creating a Future that Works. This means:
- Commit to ending employment poverty within 5 years. The world has fundamentally changed, and we need to redesign employment support for those out of work and who want to work. We need a bold plan to end employment poverty for those who can and want to work.
- Commit to working locally to deliver employment support. Focus on providing jobs locally for local people and those who are in employment poverty alongside working with those who have the best local knowledge.
- Don’t go it alone. Work with local leaders, businesses and social housing providers to make sure any investment in local support matches local need.
