    This item will show under the following categories: Children and Families   Employability  

    The Social Justice and Social Security Committee looked at how the Scottish Government is working with local authorities, employers and other partners. They want to understand how they are supporting parents find suitable jobs or move into better paid work. 

    Key themes of the inquiry include: 

    • The Scottish Government's 'parent employment offer' and the policy and delivery plans connected to it 
    • Local approaches and the extent to which they are targeted at those most at risk of poverty 
    • Employment needs 
    • Childcare needs
    • Housing needs 
    • Transport needs

    The Committee undertook a number of visits and meetings to Rutherglen, North Ayrshire, Benbecula, and Uist where they met with local infrastructure organisations and service delivery partners, parents, employers and teachers.
