Central London Forward Conference 

Central London Forward’s three employment programmes are currently undergoing evaluation from four organisations. We believe this is a really interesting position to be in and we’re keen to bring together stakeholders to talk about the lessons from the evaluations and how to apply these going forward when thinking about future devolution and challenges when commissioning programmes.

Due to the ongoing situation around the COVID-19 outbreak we have decided to postpone the planned CLF Conference due to take place on the 10th of June. We were excited to be hosting engaging and colourful discussions around the current and future state of devolution and local employment service provision and hope that we’ll be able to set a date for later in the year.
