Call for partners: Maximus UK Community Partnership Networks
At Maximus UK, we’re committed to working collaboratively with partners with shared values and a belief that supporting people into quality work helps individuals and communities to thrive.
Through our successful and innovative Community Partnership Networks (CPNs) around the country, we have already referred tens of thousands of service users to more than 200 community organisations and partners, ranging from training providers to health and disability specialists and community groups. We know this approach benefits everyone, providing flexibility for CPN partners and a diverse range of support to service users.
The services accessed through the CPN will complement the support being delivered by Maximus UK and our end-to-end delivery partners and will be an integral part of our delivery of the Restart programme. Restart, currently being commissioned by the Department for Work and Pensions, will support long-term unemployed people to develop new skills, retrain if needed, and find sustainable work.
Working at a regional level, the CPN will bring together organisations from the public, private and voluntary sectors to provide support to jobseekers, and to allow us to fund innovative solutions to help more people find work.
This includes signposting to funded provision in the local area, the spot-purchase of services and programmes offered by CPN members, and collaboration to develop new services where they don’t currently exist. We believe that through the CPN we will be better able to meet the needs of local communities, working together to respond to the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic, long-term unemployment and physical and mental wellbeing.
We would like to invite organisations to join our Community Partnership Networks in the following areas:
the East Midlands and Lincolnshire
South and West Yorkshire, Derbyshire, and Nottinghamshire.
The CPN is particularly well suited to SMEs, VCSE and regional providers, embedded in local communities and which share our values and are keen to integrate services. We are not seeking additional EOIs for end-to-end supply chain partners at this time.
We will also be hosting a series of regional virtual events on 18 and 19 January to provide more information on the CPN and how we plan to work with local partners through our delivery of Restart.
You can register for the events here (please ensure you register for the appropriate regional event as they are tailored to local areas).
