We are pleased to announce that following our last Local London Joint Committee, the London Borough of Bromley applied to become a member of Local London and the other boroughs involved have agreed to that.
Bringing our membership to nine London Boroughs, we look forward to building on the work we have already begun with Bromley.
To date this has included employment programmes such as JETS (Job Entry Targeted Support) in response to the impact of Covid, the Work and Health Programme that supports people who are far away from the job market, as well as improving knowledge of services and access to employment through Work Connections.
We will continue to support careers education for young people in secondary schools, colleges, and pupil referral units in Bromley and across the other Local London boroughs to achieve national benchmarks.
Now representing around 100,000 businesses and 2.6 million people – a population greater than Birmingham, Manchester and Liverpool combined – we are excited to provide support to more residents, professionals and businesses across north east, east and south east London.
Councillor Baroness O’Neill of Bexley OBE, Chairman of Local London said “I am pleased that the London Borough of Bromley have recognised the benefit of being a member of the Local London partnership. We recognise the benefits of sharing some resources and delivering support across our boroughs when appropriate to give the residents and businesses in our sub-region the best help possible. Now representing over 2.6 million people, our voice has increased in strength.”
