JUfJ provider forum

The forum is an independent network of employability service providers in Edinburgh. It is run by and for providers through a steering group. 

The forum meets regularly and provides an opportunity for practitioners from across the network to come together.  It consists of organisations and individuals who support people to progress into sustainable employment. Our network strengthens the links between employability and tackling poverty, both locally and nationally.

The forum steering group is comprised of network representatives. The remit of the group is to:

  • Represent all members of the network
  • Liaise between funding bodies and members
  • Disseminate key messages to all stakeholders
  • Broaden the reach of the forum
  • Set agendas
  • Organise JUFJ forum meetings and events
  • Attend employability and related events
  • Highlight issues as raised by the network forum.
The next dates are as follows: 
  • 31 May 2019
  • 30 August 2019
  • November 2019 (date and venue TBC).

Forums will be held in the Business Centre, City Chambers, 253 High Street, Edinburgh and will run from 09:00 - 12:00.

If you would like to attend the forum, please email paige.evans@capitalcitypartnership.org with the date of the forum you wish to attend. 

The steering group will meet prior to each session to finalise the agenda. Chair is held by a third sector member of the steering group on a rotating basis. The chair for the May forum is Lucy Pearson.
