The London Enterprise Panel is working closely with boroughs to plan and develop provision to support workless groups into sustainable employment opportunities particularly those furthest from the labour market and not eligible for support under the Work Programme as outlined in the 2014-2020 European Structural and Investment Funds Strategy and London Growth Deal.
