Support for employers in Lincolnshire & Rutland making redundancies

Jobcentre Plus is providing support and advice to employers and employees in redundancy situations through its Rapid Response Service.

Advice is available for employers with any number of employees at risk of redundancy.
Support includes:

  • helping people facing redundancy to write CVs and find jobs
  • providing general information about benefits
  • helping people to find the right training and learn new skills
  • helping with costs like travel to work expenses

There are a number of local and national advice and support schemes.  Some are delivered directly by DWP and others (including Careers Advice, ESF training schemes) through your local council.  DWP works with those schemes to signpost in the most appropriate way.
