I have been asked to proof read an article for the upcoming edition of the Hirer magazine today about the Government initiative PACE (Partnership Action for Continuing Employment) which was created to support individuals who have either been made redundant or face the threat of losing their job.
The article written by Nicola Hamilton talks of the aims and structure of PACE and makes clear that although “absolutely necessary” as the Shadow Minister for Economy and Skills, John Park states, it is at the moment not reaching as many people as it could. It's an interesting article and I do agree with the fact that it’s not publicised enough. I personally hadn't heard of PACE before today and think that if it's to help people then people definitely need to know the support exists.
It would be interesting to know if anyone has any experience, good or bad about the initiative.
Let me know…
