Free help to employees facing redundancy
We are actively helping employees facing redundancy in the East of England by providing careers advice and training at no cost to either the employer or employee.
The ‘Skills Support for Redundancy' (SSR) action plan is for workers in Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Suffolk. Funded by the European Social Fund, The Skills Funding Agency and TCHC and delivered by Career experts Lindsey Reed and Katherine Wiid of Recrion, the SSR action plan covers:
- career guidance
- skills assessment
- a training grant of £675
- outplacement workshops to help candidates match and market themselves to new and hidden job opportunities.

The SSR action plan is available to employees who have been put "at risk" of redundancy and those who have recently been made redundant.
Praise for the programme
I would recommend this programme to any individual that found themselves at risk of redundancy. This is not just a process about putting an individual on a course for added training; it is about you as a person, to talk to someone independent about what you are going through. I found the time I spent with the adviser a great help, not only did it supply me with a good training opportunity but my confidence and self belief has improved because they care! Andrew Burgess
As with all government funding not everyone will be eligible for the scheme but many will be. The key to the funding is that we need to move quickly to help those affected by redundancy as soon as it is announced.
Further praise for the programme
I would recommend the Redundancy Support scheme because it does what it says on the tin: it provides a positive response to redundancy by working with the individual to discover the most appropriate way to move forward. I have found it positive and very encouraging at a very unsettling time in my life. Antony Hurden
Katherine and Lindsey work fantastically as a team with different approaches and styles which complement each other well. They have inspired confidence in me and I feel well equipped to move forward with my future career plans. Penne, Peterborough Regional College
