Moving into Employment

Cumbria County Council is committed to achieving employment equality for everyone by ensuring a broad range of services are commissioned that promote individuals’ potential to secure and sustain work. This includes the chance for everyone to get a job, irrespective of their vulnerability or disability.

Moving into Employment services provide personalised one-to-one support and coaching to enable individuals to achieve sustainable long-term employment or self-employment. The services will support people with disabilities and/or mental health problems to utilise a proportion of their Personal Budget, together with any other appropriate sources of funding such as Access to Work, to buy the support they need to get and keep paid employment.

Moving into Employment is a service contracted by Cumbria County Council.
