What We Do…

 

LEMIS North West is a European Social Fund / Department for Economy funded programme designed to engage unemployed and economically inactive clients, and by identifying and addressing barriers to employment, move the clients towards and into employment. While on the programme clients are supported by a dedicated mentor and are guided as they identify their barriers to employment and prepare an action plan to overcome these and progress towards employment.

A significant number of clients have engaged in training and skills development to enhance their employment opportunities. We have in fact added to our original list of training opportunities and now offer 16 training options.
