Executive summary

The purpose of the paper is to seek approval to release up to £796,750 of the London Enterprise Fund (approved under cover of MD895 and MD1092) to provide grant funding to an organisation as a contribution to costs of delivering its Tottenham Employment Support project which was granted in principle (stage 2) approval at Investment Programme Board on 24 July 2014. MD895 and MD1092 also delegated investment decisions to the Executive Director for Development, Enterprise and Environment.

The project will provide activities supporting people furthest from the labour market toward employment and in low paid employment toward a better job. It will also improve coordination and cross referrals between council-led, voluntary and statutory services to simplify provision of support to job seekers.
